is total concentration.”
– Kurt Vonnegut
Some years ago, I read about a study of multitasking, and how researchers discovered that folks who try to multitask actually end up getting less done than those who focus on one task at a time. Sometimes when we have a hard time accomplishing our goals and responsibilities, it’s because we haven’t set ourselves up for success by creating the time and space to work uninterrupted. If you’re frustrated and running behind, ask yourself if distractions are wasting your time and energy, and consciously create the ideal conditions for total concentration. It will allow you to tap your deepest personal resources, and empower you to make the most of your time and potential.
