I’ve hit on this top before, but I feel the need to hit on this topic again…
In this Wednesday wisdom post,
I’m about to read summa y’all I’m going to tell you why I think the concept of multitasking needs to have a stadium full of seats.
- Um, why do you really need to do several things at once? I mean, really? But Sug, I breathe and blink and my heart beats ALL at the same time, so that’s kinda like multitasking. First of all, . Second, all of the aforementioned are part of your autonomic nervous system AND that happens without your conscious effort. If you were responsible for all of those things, however; you’d probably mess that up and end up in somebody’s emergency room.
- Your attention to detail may not be all that detailed. You’re bound to miss something. For example, you’re definitely bound to miss that red stop light if you are updating Twitter and drinking your coffee while driving to work.
- Multitasking can make you anxious. You may find yourself
thinkingworrying about all the things you could be doing while you’re currently doing stuff.
- Multitasking can affect your sleeping. Instead of just winding down, you’re probably thinking about all the tasks you can after your restless night of sleep.
- I know you’re thinking you’re doing an AMAZING job with all of those tasks. Chances are, you’re not.
But Sug, what can I about all this multitasking?
- Admit that you’re doing way too much at once.
- Improve your time management. Chances are, you’re doing all of those things at once because you failed to set a reasonable and workable schedule.
- Make a to do list.
- Set boundaries! It’s okay to say no!
- Put your cellphone away when you’re driving.
- Most importantly, do one task at a time.
Well, that’s if for this Wednesday Wisdom blog post. I hope this serves as a reminder and an invitation for you to slow yo roll! It’s okay to not bite off more than you can chew, plus you’ll feel better and be less stressed.
Thank you so much for listening and Wordless Wednesday will return next week. :D
