This week consider the notion of ‘confusion’.
What does it mean to you?
It’s not hard to be confused about any number of things.
Confusion seems to be a constant in my life these days. A bit more to do than usual and I am confused. It could be a result of overthinking simple things or maybe because I feel overwhelmed.
I have learned a few tricks to calm the turbulence in my mind;
• Break the task at hand into smaller tasks;
This makes things simple and easy to execute. It also has the beneficial effect of making the job at hand appear smaller.
• Take a break and do something else for a while;
Again this method quietens the mind and eases the confusion by removing the stress of getting things done now and getting them done perfectly.
• If the confusion is overwhelming, postpone the chore for another day;
This is usually my last choice but when the need arises, I have come to accept my limitations and put that task to do another day.
Confusion can be a result of overloading our minds with too much information. We can handle this if we give ourselves some breathing room.
What makes you confused?
