We all attempt to multitask. Sometimes it is a necessity (particularly when you have small children). However, I’ve learned that multitasking often produces poor results. If you want to be more productive, you need to focus.
A few weeks ago I tried an experiment. My husband was taking our daughters to do a project at Home Depot on a Saturday morning. I’d been wanting to work on brainstorming new content for the blog. I challenged myself to focus solely on writing and brainstorming for the three hours that I was home alone.
And you know what? In that time I came up with the beginning to 20 different posts! I definitely could not have accomplished that much had I been attempting to multitask.
I’m now a big believer in the impact of focus and single-tasking. If you want to be more productive, you need to focus.
