Yes sir, I multitask. Every damn day! I’m writing emails, answering questions, talking on the phone and eating lunch all at the same time. How else do you get anything done???
I’ve always prided myself on multitasking. I thought doing it made me a super star. Unfortunately I’m realizing it made me a super star at inefficiency. I’m trying to do two things at the same time, so I’m not doing either of them well. I’m known for saying, “where was I?” at work because I’m always going between multiple tasks. Doing that screws up my day and adds time to everything I do.
I wish I could say I was smart enough to figure this out on my own but I’m not. My husband made me read the book The Myth of Multitasking by Dave Crenshaw. It’s a very quick read.
I’m trying to incorporate the habits he teaches into my daily life so I’m present for all that I’m doing. The premise applies to other aspects of life too, like spending time with family.
I’ll report back in after a couple of weeks to let you know how it’s going. What tips do you have for getting more done in a day? Thanks for reading & responding!! ❤️ TC
