Singular focus, i.e. focusing on doing one thing at a time, is essential for creativity, productivity and mental health. It’s been proven over and over again that multi tasking DOES NOT WORK. It’s not good for our brains or emotional health. I struggle with this a lot, especially being 58 years old. I feel like I’m running out of time on this planet and there’s so much I want to do! For younger people nowadays it’s even harder with keeping a house together, working sometimes two or more jobs and raising kids.
I came across the podcast on focus yesterday and found it very interesting. I thought I would share it here in case someone else can benefit from it! Try doing one thing at a time for a couple of days! You don’t have to be perfect, just TRY it. You might feel more peaceful and get more done 🙂
