Mental WOD #9: One Thing at a Time
|“Iced or HOT coffee…What should I do???”|
We live in a world of information OVERLOAD! Personally, I catch myself over thinking and over doing too many things at once.
The world’s information avalanche actually can hobble learning, Schwartz says. Learning is most efficient when dispensed in spaced cycles rather than in one big glut. And when projects likewise are broken down into smaller chunks, you can maintain high levels of focus as you conquer interim challenges.
The capacity for absorbed attention is perhaps the most influential factor on productivity.Multitasking is actually a time-waster, with studies showing it takes 25 percent longer to work on multiple assignments at once (actually switching back and forth between them) than if the tasks were completed sequentially. Email, a tremendous distraction, saps and squanders mental energy that could be applied to more meaningful work. -Found from http://www.successmagazine.com/on-your-mark-get-set-recharge/PARAMS/article/1389/channel/22
To preserve your mental energy, focus and increase your productivity, I would like to introduce this week’s Mental WOD…Do things one at a time.
After you PRE PLAN YOUR NEXT DAY work your TDL or tasks throughout the day, one thing at a time.
Avoid the distraction, stay focused and finish more and finish better.
