2 Reasons Why I NEVER Refer to Myself as a “Multi-Tasker”

FIRST and Foremost — THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MULTI-TASKING! So while it may ‘look’ or absolutely ‘FEEL’ like you are multi-tasking, it is DANGEROUS to call yourself that!

Human beings are incapable of thinking more than ONE conscious thought at a time! Saying to others and yourself that you are multi-tasking, repeatedly and over time, has you believe it.

Multi-Tasking is IMPOSSIBLE!

1. Moving from task to task (and calling it multi-tasking) does not occur simultaneously and over time YOU LOSE FOCUSin all areas of your life, not just work!

2. You WASTE YOUR OWN TIME! The time it takes to move from task to task is wasted. Then couple that with #1, your diminishing lack of focus .. and even more time is lost!

Take it from me, once self dubbed as the Queen of Multi-tasking! I had to take on a consistent practice to RESTORE my own ability to FOCUS!

Do ONE thing at a time. DO it well. Change tasks at a scheduled time, rather than at will.

Even your computer knows better! It may look like he/she is doing more than one thing at a time … it’s just going REAL FAST!
