Much credit and admiration is given to multitasking but there comes a time when cleaning the house while sending emails and engaging with social media and baking doesn’t feel like achievement to me; it feels like diluted effort. And I don’t like to give half-measures. I’m more likely to make mistakes and it makes me feel scatty, not a sensation I’ve ever enjoyed.
So here be my resolutions:
- I will stow my phone under my desk, in my bag and on silent to promote my concentration at work.
- I will watch that documentary I’ve been looking forward to without simultaneously scrolling through Instagram.
- I will complete one task before unnecessarily jumping on the next one.
Of course there will be moments when I shall feel superhuman as I keep seemingly dozens of plates spinning in the air, but it’s time for me to give my concentration the concentration it requires. I have new adventures planned and I want to be strong in this facet before I set another plate in motion.
Let the spinning desist!
