ON GEMMELSMERCH

Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Crazy Busy, defines gemmelsmerch as the force that distracts us from what we want or ought to be doing. Some examples:

Fixing the computer glitch for 3 hours
Reading magazines instead of doing your work
The telephone, cell phone, blackberry, or Treo. Turn them off and limit your calls.
Television - how much watching is too much?
An open door that allows people to pop in
Radio talk shows - do you find them addicting and lose focus on what you are doing?
The mess - clutter in your office, home or car. File it, shelve it, use it, or throw it away.

The Coach agrees . . . that we need to figure out what matters most to us and do what matters most to us. DON'T GET SIDE- TRACKED.
