The Dilemma

Alison_Drake_the_shorest_way

We all want to get as much done in the day as possible.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a few (or more) things going at once. You’re writing and answering emails, you’re paying bills, making appointments, doing the laundry…oh, and then there’s that work thing too :) It’s hard NOT to multi task. I’ve read enough about how it doesn’t serve us to multi-task and how we’re actually less efficient when we do and yet, I still have a difficult time not doing it! As I type this post, I should be working on a presentation for a class. This was my priority for the day and yet here I am squeezing in a blog post and a newsletter, not to mention all the other wee things that have popped up today. It’s not just the obvious things but who doesn’t occasionally find themselves talking to their husband and at the same time texting a friend?! BUSTED! I know how wrong that is. Despite that I think I have super powers, I cannot hold a conversation fully AND write to someone else at the same time!

How do we close all that off and just do one thing?

Clearly, I don’t have the answer but I do have the desire to try! I am really consciously going to try NOT to multi-task for the next two days and see what a difference it makes in my life. I shall report back, of course! Wish me luck :)

Here’s to doing the one right thing at a time!

Do you find yourself multi-taking and trying to squeeze too much into your day? If anyone has any great solutions or things that have worked for them, please share. We’d all be very grateful! email_signoff1
