Start Practising Solitude
Saying “NO” will let you focus on things that matter in your life. People don’t say NO because of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).
We are living in a world of information overload and most of the information we consume is not at all relevant for us.
Just sit down for a while and make a note of what is the most important activity for you in this particular phase of your life and then list out what you actually need to do that activity.
You will find that only a few things are required to do that activity or only a few things contribute to your core activity. The rest of the things are just creating problems and consuming your time unnecessarily.
Before you say yes or you get involved in a particular activity just ask yourself whether it will contribute to the goals that really matter for you or not.
Learn to PRIORITISE.
It is not just the humongous amount of information we are consuming unnecessarily, we are also letting others impose their opinion on us or even force us to give our opinion even if it is not required at all.
We all have to choose deliberately and purposefully where we need to focus, otherwise, we are leaving our mind on autopilot mode and it will definitely be lured by things that are not going to contribute anything to our life goals.
Rather than spending time on unnecessary information and activity, spend some time with yourself. Start learning about your strengths and weaknesses.
