It’s All an Illusion - I have always prided myself in the fact that I am a multi-tasker. Up until five years ago, it was even my go to word! For the record, I am most known for – not only my curly hair – but the fact that I can get the amount of work done in the time that it would take five people to do. I am fast; I am efficient; I am focused. I am really, really good at starting a project and finishing a project to its fullest. As well as getting everything else done!!! I would simultaneously stay healthy, be a good mom, clean the house, take care of the dog. Whatever it was, it got done on my watch.
BUT, five years ago, I read an article that labeled multi-tasking as a myth. Apparently it is actually impossible. Our brains delude us into thinking that what we have done is multi-tasking, yet it is all an illusion. I decided to take this reading into consideration since I am invested in learning and growing. I have to admit, though, I was slightly offended because I thought: “What!? Yes I can multi-task! I do it all the time.”
When I started to break it down and analyze my days, I realized I do not multi-task. I concentrate on one thing at a time. It just seems like multi-tasking because I accomplish multiple things in a single day.
Ninety percent of the time, I try to work off a list. It may be comprised of things that I have to get done or things that should be done or things that I have been putting off. To me, there’s really nothing greater than being able to scratch things off of your list. It gets you feeling more accomplished.
You do not need to multi-task in order to make your day matter. Doing things one at a time will suffice! More info on multi-tasking ---here--- on my latest podcast!
