Well let's switch gears a one event not -- you've been up plug and play.
Video games for hours on end maybe need to pull back away from.
That the on video games and the electronics a lot of that in and Peter Bregman as a CO advisor joining me on -- here in New York in.
-- -- talk us a little bit more about sort of re setting and in.
We you know I actually.
I think that's critical and I also think it's critical to unplug from ourselves.
So Michael so wanted to let you know what do you night and also what my first realize this when I was having problems in the wireless router and and article -- -- and I had a whole bunch of work to do.
And my wireless and then when it goes down of course of course.
Which actually worked in my favor because I got a lot of work done otherwise there would have been shopping on Amazon.
So so I got a lot of work -- that I had to send to my editor right right.
And and I have to get it working and I curse data that night I turned everything on -- -- often nothing was working.
And finally I just did the kind of remembered what it was that I needed to do which is unplugged the wireless router for one minute.
And during that minute I had nothing to do a deceptive right.
And I plugged it back in and the wireless -- started working again and because they'd return to his factory default settings to.
I had actually returned -- -- factory default settings to -- because I think actually naturally we're pretty nice generous compassionate.
You know effective people now you have sort of forced us for doing this -- unplugging if you will Yahoo! -- very very complicated stuff articles talk about it stop what you're doing.
Breathe and do nothing for one minute.
And then go back to doing what you're doing again.
Those of the voters various while we take a pause back -- that -- always thinking you know this doesn't play so well for television and up you know I don't know plus what has to do it every hour at least.
But yeah we can just sit here from minute and not talk but I'm not sure that would play very well.
And I think you your your eye doctors would tell you the same -- pull away from all the electronics and then just just taken the -- look outside and and yes are you suggesting.
Meditating just sort of veggie for a minute here yeah I think you know -- meditation call imagining it's really stopping everything there's really interesting research.
You know we.
Two and a -- Half minutes.
Is the difference apparently.
And ethical decision making and offenses and they did this research.
Where you basically could make an extra five bucks if you lied to the person on the other on on a computer they put people computer if you lied you make an extra five bucks if you said the truth.
You wouldn't make that for five bucks.
They told people to make a decision in thirty seconds.
Most of them -- Then they said.
Take three minutes right so the difference between.
You know that these two scenarios was two and a half minutes until under arrest decision you -- slugger rash decision you're just thinking for second.
That was the difference between the lying and not lying and saying the truth.
And so if it's a way of kind of you know we moved so fast the other day I made a phone call.
And it was rating so I started to do an email the other person I don't -- -- the other person picked up.
I forgot who I was calling it right.
Because whenever I -- -- -- never never never we're moving so fast enough so we need to take these moments not a lot amid an hour is not a lot.
We take a moment.
To just -- to reset.
To do literally nothing and and you can't be watching a video from within -- -- -- playing a video game getting video voice dictation to my phone while I'm calling -- -- the same -- that's exactly right -- -- just because it can do it doesn't mean you need to -- and you know you could -- 59 minutes but for one minute stop doing that and then then you'll be better off.
Yeah you say this this seems to be that the one minute visit is magical is that enough.
No I mean I think it's you know high high -- for me in my practice system I meditate for 20 minutes in the morning 20 minutes in the evening that kind of -- myself.
You know for the day right and then.
Let you know in my book eighteen minutes which is focused on managing time I have an eighteen minute process and that process is 5 minutes in the morning emitted each hour and 5 minutes in the evening.
And it's kind of setting the stage deciding what it is that you're gonna doing what you're gonna focus on doing intentional about that -- emitted each hour to breathe and also the just keep yourself focused.
And -- to prevent yourself from getting distracted early bring yourself back after the distraction from the five minutes in the afternoon.
-- after you're done working to wrap things up and to think about what you wanna do differently.
This is we need these moments -- our lives that are moving so quickly and and my work is -- -- tomatoes I mean we're we're.
We're talking very successful incredibly busy people.
They need this time to reset themselves and mature than making Smart decided -- they need to take five minutes now gonna foxbusiness.com.
