One thing that we feel there is never enough of is time. We always seem to need more. Is there a way? What’s the trick?
As a result, we are constantly stopping and starting and running around trying to get it all done. And you may be under the delusion that multi-tasking is the key to success.
I get it and am often guilty of it. However, multi-tasking on brain work actually reduces efficiency. Multi-tasking leaves you constantly divided. Nothing ever gets your full focus, so you are never at your best. You are constantly a watered-down version of yourself.
There is a big difference between multi-tasking and being efficient.
The trick to efficiency is to find the underused time of the day or week, or that dead time when you can’t get anything real done.
