Getting through the day requires serious discipline. It demands a level of strategy, endurance, consistency, and commitment in getting tasks, completed. Making the most of our time and using each second, minute, and hour to complete tasks (and create) is something which is an art on its own. Throughout the day, a person has to find their own rhythm. Working through the day requires a person to locate their particular style of work. What is the style, that allows you to produce the most within a given amount of time?

Completing tasks and all of our work responsibilities can be stressful. In fact, it can even place us in a state of discomfort; ridding us of any pleasures, which can come in the work process. Moving swiftly in the process creates a discord, where we are creating in order to simply get things done. If not careful, we can end up in a robotic state, where we have forgotten the very reason for why we get up in the morning to do what we need to do. As human beings, we should be passionate about what we do. There is a way in how we can move through our work commitments. Not only can we move through them gracefully, but we can also experience new ways, and requirements in getting the necessary work done.

Too often, there are those individuals, who treat their work areas like a storage space. There is no organization, color, or sign that one is being entertained within one’s work cubicle, or desk.

There is nothing wrong in working in the midst of beauty. In fact, that is what gives us the inspiration to push through any challenging, or pleasant, day. Creating beauty in your work space gives you the necessary energy to nourish yourself for those challenging days.

While rest is needed, make sure that the break is enjoyable. Do something fun during that lunch break. Try a new dish. Taste a foreign drink. Watch a quick video that you have been meaning to see. Such activities are important as they give you that extra energy, you will need for the second go around.

One of the things which can be done to make completing our daily tasks that much easier, is to change our mentality on the concept of, work. Too often work is viewed as a torture chamber. The very concept of work is constantly presented, as if it is not supposed to be an enjoyable experience. Work is equated to transforming into robotic machines; having no variety, and consistently involved in tedious labor, which drains our energy. Rarely is work ever equated to re-storing and replenishing that very same energy.

*Journal After the Work Day Has Ended

One of the things concerning after work hours is that we get that time to reflect. There is ample time in being able to release mental energy and write down our creations on paper. Personal reflection is a time, where we are able to assess what we did wrong, and what we did right. Its better to focus on what we actually did right. Then, we are able to review how we can improve on those tasks we fell short of. Write them down. In that way, we have something to strive for, in the coming days and weeks. Clear your mind from all of the energy you have exerted. It gives you that preparation needed, in getting those tasks, completed!

Completion is one of the satisfactory elements of work. In knowing that we have gone through a particular journey, there is a sigh of relief. Yes, the work has been completed. Simultaneously, the journey should be enjoyable. Every tasks should build up to having stored our energy sectors; rather than depleting them. With that being stated, let’s treat our daily tasks as a sacred journey, rather than a necessary, and urgent, check off list. That way we are even more fulfilled when the tasks have finally, reached, completion! Finally, ending our lists.
