Multitasking was rated as one of the great skills by many of the employers. Not anymore! Leaders in business growth are proving that it creates poor quality work.
I hear the stories and complaints from my clients that because of multitasking they lack clarity and focus and, therefore, resorts to poor habits detrimental to their health, work and relationships.
Personally, when I transited my thinking from being distracted with many tasks in my hand to devoting my full attention to one task or a person in front of me, I have started getting results in the form of rewarding work and most meaningful and satisfactory relationship.
Although life and work often demand us to multitask, we just have to be mindful of its close relation with stress and another health impact.
So, I invite you to challenge yourself to take 5 minutes every few hours and ask yourself, what is the impact I want to have by doing so many things or conversation at the same time?
Instead evaluate your priorities and give your undivided attention to a task which is going to produce epic work and meaningful work and life conversations.
