11-2-19: distractions

Chapman GrubbNovember 02, 2019

Distractions are a dime a dozen. Science has proven countless times that multitasking is a myth. Googling the phrase ‘myth of multitasking’ should be more than enough to confirm that. 

The noise of life is so loud. How can we be expected to cope with constant information, if multitasking isn’t an option? 

Commitment becomes crucial. Prioritization is paramount. Completion is key.

It has always been my experience that firing up the engine is the hardest part. Once you build momentum and find a rhythm, it becomes much smoother sailing until the task is done. Jumping in and out of projects is so costly.

I use two five hour work blocks daily. For small projects - before you flip the switch - know what the ‘end’ is. Know what time and materials you need to get there. (This will take practice and I have been wrong often.)

Deliberately breaking up large projects, to fit into your established time blocks, will be an advantage. I have been the most effective I have ever been over the past month. I love what has happened and I love how naturally I am falling into step with my full schedule. 

Training my instinct to take over administration is the best decision I have ever made.
