I have been reading that studies(?) are finding that multitasking is not as effective as focusing on something until it is done. I don't know if this is really a change in thought for me, but I am definitely feeling like this makes a lot of sense. I usually feel like a chicken running with it's head cut off, but lately I am feeling about as useful as one, and I think ineffective multitasking is to blame.
Multitasking is a way of life for me as a Mother, but between all the interruptions that life and kids provide, it is just too hard to lose my place or forget where I am at in the midst of the chaos. I think that by laying out individual tasks and not moving on until they are done I will be able to accomplish more and minimize the ever present procrastination tendency. I am actually starting to think that this might even give me more free time to just enjoy life and the munchkins.
The kids are in bed and I am ready to start. Here's to a more organized and enjoyable life!
