Multi-tasking is over rated. One definition of Zen is simply “doing one thing at a time”- which goes a long way toward explaining why Zen Masters look so calm and live so long.

Doing an excellent job will eventually take a toll if your mind is trying to do to many things at once. When it’s time to work, exercise, or nurse your baby, you’ll be doing yourself a great service to stay focused. Make that one activity worthy of your full attention. It’s become a parenting and occupational hazard to divide your mental state into one simultaneous strategy to get all your work done.

We all need  space to establish the difference between work and home. The importance of building an environment to save your soul begins with acknowledging a a boundary in your physical space. It’s hard to leave work at the door, if you work from home. So set up a work station and don’t visit that part of your home during off hours.

There are 24 hours in a day and we all experience not enough time to get it all done. So maybe it’s time to branch out and take stock of some of the things that aren’t quite a priority. Then cancel them. Learn to say “no”. That’s a complete sentence:-)

Once you become a parent, it’s you’re responsibility to set your children into this world feeling nurtured, loved and “heard”! So take the time to listen. You might just hear something from your child that will put an ever lasting smile on your face! Make time to build memories. You’re family is worth it!

We all can do better. The past is gone. We all make mistakes. However, you do have a choice to take responsibility for your time and love for you’re family. Living a frazzled life is painful. You and you’re family don’t deserve it!

At the end of the day, you can have anything you want, just not everything! Once you accept that reality, you’re on your road to success, acceptance and a full and happy life!
