Your One Big Thing

by Chris Baréz-Brown

Most people’s lives are busy. It’s so easy for us to get up and plough straight on with the things that need to be done – and the next time we take a breath, the day is over.
 
Being busy is addictive. It is another strategy we use to numb our emotions. Author and researcher Brené Brown explains: ‘We are a culture of people who’ve bought into the idea that if we stay busy enough, the truth of our lives won’t catch up with us.’ Being carried along on a whirlwind of tasks makes us feel as if we are needed and achieving something but, more often than not, we are using our energy on the stuffthat doesn’t count, but that shouts the loudest.

Before getting drawn into your to-do list, think of one big thing you need to achieve today. Take your time to get perspective on what’s most important to you. Take a deep breath, smile, and just see what comes to you. You’ll know when you’ve got it right, because you’ll feel excited about delivering it and you’ll know it will create real impact for you and/or those around you. Once you’ve identified it, spend as long as you need to make it happen before getting distracted by the world calling for your attention. What’s your one big thing today?
