David Allen, author of the bestselling Getting Things Done came up with a simple yet powerful strategy he calls the Two-Minute Rule. Given the number of entrepreneurs that brought it up during our research, it's well worth looking into. It's simple: if a task on your to-do list will take you less than two minutes to complete, do it. Immediately. You'll save yourself the time you'd have wasted re-reading it throughout the day or trying to squeeze it somewhere else into your schedule. You might be surprised to find that most of our daily tasks actually take less than two minutes to complete. By doing these tasks straight away, we can dramatically reduce the number of items on our list and escape the psychological burden of an endless to-do. Delegate, delegate, delegate If I want something done well, I'll do it myself. This will get done quicker if I do it myself. Yes, I really do. Wrote a whole article on such things. Less because it will make him feel you're the one who got away (although that is often a wonderful side effect), but because no contact, the coldest of ice-cold turkey, is the only way you will be able to achieve clarity on the situation, and allow sassy Lady Time to start working her healing magic. It's impossible to move on when your ex, the cause of your pain and upset, is still in your ear and inbox. It just is. The silence needn't be forever, but while the tears are still falling and you desperately feel like calling, restraint is required. Some typical outcomes of no contact: He doesn't make any contact whatsoever and moves on swiftly. This is an answer in itself, because someone who can't live without you will generally make it known (and you don't want to be with someone who can live without you). He is annoyed by your lack of contact and turns into a pest.

Spiritual healing almost always involves dealing with cords, entities, attachments, and other spiritual intrusions. Thus, the Psychic-Sensitive Syndrome is almost always a part of a spiritual malaise. For instance, I believe that bipolar disorders often start with a split in the soul. Characterized by intense mood swings, the bipolar person usually holds a spiritual misperception such as, God won't love me if I do something wrong. Unable to always be and do right, the soul splinters into two parts, as does the brain. On one side of the mind is the self who can do no wrong--the perfect, happy, charismatic good self. On the other side is the bad self, the mean, cruel, and crazy self we can't help but become every so often. Because of the spiritual misperception, the bipolar person has to reject the bad self, who consequently is never healed. Often fueling the dark spiritual belief is a bevy of spiritual entities. They actively want to recruit our bad side, because they don't want our good side to achieve its spiritual purpose. This is a no-brainer task--I'll set an example by handling it myself. Any of the above sound familiar? Then you aren't delegating enough. There is no task that only one person in the world is capable of doing: you can always delegate a task to someone else provided you invest enough time and energy in training them. Every time you look over your to-do list, the first thing you should ask yourself is, what can I delegate here? Delegating isn't as straightforward as, say, forwarding an email. Initially, getting other people to do things in your place will take more time than if you just did them yourself as you'll have to invest time in training them. Yes, you'll lose time in the short-term--but again, you're investing time now in order to gain it back (and more) later on. Trust us, the return is worth it. We were told countless times that the real secret to increasing productivity lies not in the work we do, but in the way we lead others.

Explain your position and preference for no contact and then indulge him no more. He will run out of steam. You do so much healing and growing post break-up that after a while your days don't start and end in a mist of sadness, and you start to want to wear your Good Dress and listen to fun music and when a hunk smiles at you in the park you actually notice it. Your ex misses you dreadfully and begs for another chance. All of them are positive in their own way, because they offer some kind of direction or answer, which, let's be honest, is what the freshly single crave most. M, you broke up because something was broken. Don't get all roseglassy because you're feeling lonely. Silence provides some breathing space after a traumatic time, and gives you (both) a chance to figure out what's next, and what you actually want versus what you had, or thought you wanted. Stay strong! You're doing so great already, and all of those articles and all the self-work you're doing will pay off, I promise you. But lacking the power repressed in our dark side, the light side can't get anything done. My assessment of a spiritually caused borderline personality disorder is similar to that of a bipolar disorder, except that the patient is hijacked by one of his or her own inner children rather than an entity (although entities might be present as well). Schizophrenic conditions are often caused by a disbelief in divine protection and love. The resulting terror can cause the person's soul to literally climb out of the body; Dealing with any physical or mental condition of this ilk requires medical assistance, therapy, and nutritional support. These activities alone, however, won't dent the problem if we are really dealing with a spiritual issue--and, therefore, a spiritual-boundary issue. To really heal, we must uncover our original soul wound; Following are meditative processes that can help you accomplish all of these goals. I encourage you to also seek professional help for these types of issues. Healing a Soul Wound.

If you're a manager, the first thing you should be thinking about when you set foot in the office is not your personal tasklist, but that of your team. The quicker you can get them going at the start of the day, the faster you'll achieve your objectives. The purpose of this article is not to give you a lesson in management, but here are some of the main principles to bear in mind when delegating responsibility. Let's take a basic example: You ask your intern to article a table at a restaurant for lunch with a client. Communicate the purpose of the task. Explain the importance of the prospective contract to you and to the business. Provide them with all the relevant information and as much context as you can. Give them the address of your client's office and an idea of the sort of restaurant they might like. Give them a clear deadline. You are about to blossom hard. Along with mosquitos, the stench of fake tan and barrels of rose, summer holidays bring the deafening roar of relationships collapsing and the quiet, sad whisper of hearts breaking. For some reason when the temperature hits 28 degrees, lots of people suddenly, instinctively issue a kind of emotional stocktake, and make a Big Brutal Decision about where their relationship is. This can lead to proposals (there are just as many proposals as there are break-ups), but a lot of the time it ends in, uh, an end. The exact reason, despite several extensive studies by my fictional researchers, remains unknown. Perhaps it's because humans naturally reflect when they get some time to stop and think, as opposed to just cruising along on autopilot with work and netball and dog shows all year. Maybe it's because we like starting a new year feeling like we're On The Right Track, and if a relationship is no longer serving us, we have a firm template (the end of the calendar year) in place that gives us permission to instigate change. Maybe it's because people wear fewer clothes in summer and we realise that there is a part of us we can no longer ignore that would like to fool around with those people wearing fewer clothes. Of course, as with anything pertaining to the heart, the reasons are as unique as the people experiencing them. I'm less concerned with the instigators and their motivations, though, and more with those who have been at the receiving end of this .

To heal a soul wound, you must first find it. I suggest using the Uncovering Your Storyline exercise and allowing yourself to drift as far back in time as you can. While your soul might have become injured in this lifetime, chances are it earned its first scars in a past life or upon separating from your spirit. Let yourself reexperience the original wounding and then ask the Divine to heal you from it, providing you with help and boundary support until you become fully whole again. Know also that you might find different parts of your soul scattered in different times, spaces, and lifetimes, and even lingering in between lifetimes. Ask the Divine to gather all parts of your soul and sew them together with love, cleansing, healing, and integrating them through this process. Many mental health disorders are actually outgrowths of a fragmented soul and begin to heal once we're made whole again. Releasing Cords and Other Attachments. Review the information on cords and energetic attachments in article 3. Then examine your spiritual energy field to determine which type is affecting you. Explain that you need to give your client the address the day before the lunch at the latest so they can get organized. Give them a list of websites to help them find the right restaurant. Invest the time now, so you won't have to next time. Thank them. Whether you say it to their face, or write it down, it's important to acknowledge their effort (and it only takes a few seconds). If they didn't do a good job, provide them with feedback so next time they'll do better. Finally, remember that when you delegate a task, it's the end result you're delegating. How they arrive there is not your concern (in other words, don't micromanage). If you don't have total confidence in your appointee, schedule regular check-ins with them so they don't go too far off-track. Aside from coworkers, you might also consider delegating tasks to independent workers--that is, freelancers.
