When it comes to contemporary living, it may often seem as if there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done that we want to accomplish. Ultimately, however, if we are honest with ourselves, we will see that the culprit is not just the contemporary world, but also ourselves. We have a tendency to overcommit ourselves and get overworked. We then spend the remainder of our day hooked to social media, television, and email after we've finished being busy! The answer, it would seem, is straightforward: we must quit being busier than we need to be and avoid the distractions that are sapping our energy and stealing our time. Of course, saying these things is far simpler than really doing them. Identifying the root reasons of busyness and distraction will be critical to having a realistic chance at completing them successfully. After that, we must put in place a plan to deal with them. We'll need some actual strategies in order to put that plan into action.
