Productivity Lie We are Sold To

I recently read a book, “The One Thing” and I just couldn’t believe how one book can change parts of ones self. One item in the book resonates in me and not just because I was immersed in the workforce right after graduation but because I entered a world of corporate slavery where one is taught “Multi-tasking” is the way to survive a hectic day.

This is one lie that opened my eyes to one simple daunting reality. I was set up to fail by the very people who said they want for me to succeed not because they wanted for me to fail but because they also believed in such a lie. It perfectly made sense to me when the writer presented that the concept of multi-tasking was meant for computers not because computers are working on a task all at once but because computers are so fast, it creates such an illusion. So what do we do? Focus and attentiveness on what we do and that we have to develop efficiency in switching tasks. It also made perfect sense that to be efficient, we have to list down to know our main or most important tasks so we will have the clarity of what to tackle first. Because in reality, the thought of multi-tasking in itself is stressful.

Multi-tasking is a lie.

It made wonders in me. It didn’t make everything perfect but it made everything else easier and bearable.  We cry of unfinished tasks and so much to do with so little time and never really thought that we are thinking and doing things wrong in the first place.

Practice focus and develop attentiveness. Read the book: The One Thing. Try it for a start.

Every one agrees that life is fleeting. And that life is change. It never stays the same. I am a believer of choice, of opportunities embraced and lost, I dictate what happens to me. This makes me hopeful, makes me dream, gives me courage and clears my realm. And I hope to share how change affects my life.
