Multitasking is not the best use of Time

This weekend I enjoyed going to the movies and seeing Star Trek.  It seems others thought it would be a good place to send text messages and check e-mails.  Even the week before the person next to me was continually using his Blackberry during the first act of a play.

During the “Time Management at the Age of Speed” session at the NAPO Conference in Orlando last month, Harlod Taylor shared that the fast devours the slow.  Think about it, we have more information to manage than ever before.  Not so long ago, we became overwhelmed by the fax machine.  Now we are averaging over 190 message a day because of the phone, email, Facebook, Twitter and more.

 

Time is essential to staying organized.  Do you find it is difficult to see time as it passes each hour?  Are you constantly running in circles to meet deadlines?

Visit TimeTimer.com and check out their products available to actually show time as it passes.  This especially helpful to those with ADD.
If we don’t respond to an inquiry quickly we stand the chance of loosing an opportunity.  But how is clutter effecting your schedule by multitasking throughout the day?  As the saying goes, “stop and smell the roses”.  The same can be said for enjoying the movie or texting your friends.  Don’t dilute your activies and productivity by not focusing on one project at a time.
