Issue 4 of Let's Make Life Simpler
Hope you tried Courtney’s tip on saying no. This lesson comes from Andrea Briggs, you will find a link to her blog at the end.
The one thing that I always recommend is that people do one thing at once. If you single task, it may seem like you’re spending more time because you’re focused on one task, but you’re actually spending less time overall. If you are trying to do two things at once, both of which that require your concentration and focus, your brain is actually slicing back and forth between the two, and it takes more time to do those transitions than it does just to focus on what you’re doing. Single tasking is probably the easiest way to get simplicity when it comes to time management.
Try for yourself!
Today you will single task, all day. To make it more easy you can use the so called pomodoro technique, that is focusing on a task for 20 minutes at a time. In order to succeed with single tasking you should turn off any notifications, your email and also put your phone on “do not disturb.”
Hope you liked today's exercise, and thank you for taking my course!
