Potential Project | 10:09


Hi, and welcome to the session on clear planning. This session follows closely from last week's session on clear prioritization. And what we discussed last week was the difference between activity and productivity, and came to the conclusion that those things are actually often not the same, are actually almost always not the same. activity can be many things. And it's not necessarily leading to any productivity.

Actually, research shows that 41% of our time, we're spending on low priorities. We keep ourselves very busy, but not necessarily very productive.

One of the main reasons as we discussed last week is what we call the action addiction. This tendency of us spinning the wheels, keeping ourselves busy, it gives us a sense of gratification, gives us a sense that we are important and what we're doing. But really, it doesn't always lead us to our productivity. So one of the conclusions from last week was, sometimes we need to speed up by simply slowing down.

And this week's session follows very closely from that conclusion. We're going to talk about clear planning, and how this is closely related to mindfulness.

Actually, we're going to see that there is no way of having mindfulness without having clear plans. Also, it's very, very difficult to have clear plans without having mindfulness. So we're going to look at the correlation between those two, we're going to discuss why at all plan, and how this relates, again to action addiction. And at the end, we're going to talk about on the spot planning. So when your plans change or conflict, what do you do?

Welcome to this session.
