How to Create Our Daily Goals

You're busy. I'm busy. Everyone's busy. Yet despite this bustle, we regularly don't feel especially productive from day to day. Entire weeks can flash by in a blur of meaningless emails, conferences, and admin tasks while the massive stuff is going untended.

As the 19th-century philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote, "It isn't enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?" If we want to take back control of our workday schedules and priorities, the simplest way to do it is by way of relentlessly wondering how we're spending our time. However, what questions ought we ask?

The key here is control of attention. We're so distracted, and we're feeding that feeling on every occasion we switch between responsibilities. We need to (re)educate our attention. Focused interest can serve obligations - that's the left hemisphere at work, doing rational, deductive, logical, step-by-step questioning.

The other sort of attention, which serves creativity, is where the right hemisphere is dominant. That calls for deeply quieting the thoughts. It was Betty Edwards (drawing on the proper aspect of the mind) who located that one powerful manner to prompt a shift from left to the right hemisphere is to copy an upside-down line drawing. Or to genuinely count to a certain number.

But there are lots of approaches to activate the shift: take a walk in nature, go for a run, and concentrate on a classical tune...even take a bath. It's repetition that causes the shift. The more we teach any muscle - which includes the right hemisphere - the more potent and livelier it becomes.

This all can be achieved here with the change of habit. You can very easily tap in to your power of great focus.

The book you're looking for is by Jack Canfield.

Don't be fooled by this impostor. This is a low-content, cheap knock-off of Jack Canfield's book by the same name (with the same cover graphics and layout) and it sounds like it was narrated by a robot.

Sounds like a robot read it.

I had read this book years ago. Was instrumental in changing my life goals. I was excited to get the audio version but am so disappointed in the reader. I literally think a robot read this. Total waste of money. Buy the book and read it yourself.

Needless crude language

Needless crude language is a huge turnoff to me and most people that I know. I won't consider buying from this author again.

Horrible narration!!!

The narrator of this book is so bad that you can't even focus on the material being read. I wouldn't recommend this even if it was free.
