Focus is such a rare thing. In this modern world, we prize multi-tasking. We prize being able to get a hundred things done, no matter whether those things are worth doing or not.
What would happen if you just did one or two things?
Today I will do a hundred different things, because I have to help my corporate overlords make money like the good little wage slave that I must be (for now, for now). Yesterday though, I did three things:
- I edited my book.
- I worked out.
- I did some writing for RandomC.
Truthfully, I didn’t put much time into the second and third items, so the vast majority of the day was spent on a single task. I probably worked eight hours on that alone.
I got a lot done, and I loved doing it.
What would happen if you stopped trying to do a hundred things all the time, and did just one or two? Choose them right, the projects you’re really passionate about, and I bet your day will be more fulfilling – and more productive – then it possibly could have been otherwise.
