In this episode of Uniquely Brilliant, Becky Berry and Diana Bader talk about thinking, the third component of productivity from the book, Essentialism by Greg McKeown.
Becky shares how she gets blocked when she does not think before she makes a big move.
The precepts of Essentialism consist of narrowing things down to the essentials. The process is virtually impossible to accomplish if we don’t invest time in figuring out what is essential to us.
Sleeping, thinking, and playing are the three pillars of being productive. And, the most successful, productive people schedule thinking time on their calendar!
It’s when we invest our time in stopping and thinking about what we want, that we can create purposeful movement forward. By gifting ourselves with time to think, we create room to identify what is truly important.
Diana reminds us to view the big shifts that happen as a result of our thinking as adventures.
Sometimes we have to get lost in our thoughts to figure out what we’re really thinking about!
Thought gives us the ability to see where we are and where we want to go from a fresh prespective.
Pause and think!
