Finding Quiet Time

 by Cynthia Whitmer Griffith

quiet time 2 I remember outdoor recess at elementary school I played as hard as I could during that 20 minutes and, as I looked around, everyone had red cheeks as we lined up to come back to the classroom. My third grade teacher would say, “Now, I would like everyone to lay your head on your desk for  two minutes.”  What was she up to…was she grading our math test, writing a letter to a parent or was she popping a candy in her mouth?  No, she was allowing us to clear our minds, finding focus for the remainder of the school day.

Success Magazine points out “Why you need to create quiet time in your life?” is a key learning in  The Time Bandit Solution authored by Edward G. Brown, President, Co-Chairman & Co-Founder at Cohen Brown Management Group. Time locking is a technique that “can bring focus and even joy or at least serenity to what would otherwise have felt like pressure and drudgery. “  You can read more about time locking and other techniques in this link to the Success Magazine book summary of The Time Bandit Solution.
