The Elegance of Taking One Task at the time.

The elegance of taking one task at the time.

A path for elegance is having a flow in life that moves you in a seamlessly effortless way forward. Too much to do creates stress. Too little to do also creates stress. The perfect balance is hard to achieve. But is it really?

We all know when time seems to fly away and we are inside a project or a task or something we love in our minds. Time seemed not to exist at these moments. We are in the now. We are present. Like a child fascinated by something new, she has never seen or experienced before.

This moment of being in the present is elegance at its finest. We all have a long list of tasks to do. Our managers at work might demand things from you to be done. The family at home demands your attention. Your own set goals need to be handled. Love is caring; it needs nourishing with devotion. The basics of life can create stress. So many tasks.

The way to handle life with Elegance is to be in the now. And trust the process. If you take one task at the time it will work out. If the task is “Eat an elephant”; you simply divide it into elegant pieces. And take one task at the time. Large tasks need to be divided into minor tasks. And minor tasks need to have your full attention and focus while you are at it. All successful people have one thing in common. They are practicing discipline in execution. They simply are not allowing themselves to be distracted while they are at a task. They finish tasks. And move on to execute another. They also take decisions faster. 

“Self-disciplined begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward.”

Napoleon Hill

And being into mindfulness with a task of something you never done before, absorbed by the presence like a child running in a meadow, and in full bloom of your creativity creating new things is the same as being fully focused on something you have done thousands of time before like bookkeeping, dishwashing or mowing the lawn.

It’s being focused on taking one task at the time. And finishing this task. The habit f taking one task at the time, being fully focused while commanding the task and take on the next task after that creates a flow of elegance in your life.
