We are busy. I get that. And, this month we’re working on slowing down. I’m so glad. I need it as much as you. Maybe more.
Because today is Saturday, and many of us have a few more minutes of free time, we are going to work on slowing down by single tasking today. That’s right. Today’s challenge is: Do not multitask today. I know it seems like a strange challenge, but we are constantly doing more than one thing at a time. You’ve probably checked your email or looked at a Facebook notification just since you started reading this. Because we do so much at once we have a hard time focusing on what we are doing, and we often suffer because of it.
So, today you’re not allowed to multitask. If you catch yourself doing more than one thing at a time, just stop. Take a second. Refocus.
Truthfully, I’ve noticed that when I single task I am actually more productive and have completed more tasks by the end of the day than if I were multitasking.
Give it a try. Slow down today by doing one thing at a time!
