Eight Wastes of the Mind
Distracted – Not being present or focusing on the current task.
Ruminating – repetitively going over a negative thought or a problem.
Procrastinating -chronically avoiding difficult tasks and consistently looking for distractions.
Cognitive distortion – Jumping to conclusions without having adequate supporting evidence.
Overloaded – taking on too much information at once.
Reacting – acting without stopping to think it through. Responding is the alternative to reacting. Responding consists of well processed thoughtful response you likely won't regret.
Excess processing – overthinking.
Premature demonstration – contributing ideas for review by others that haven’t been adequately vetted.
