One Thing At A Time

This blog is called 'do not complicate'.  Yet complicating is something we seem to do all the time.

How often do you multitask.  Quite a lot of the time, I bet ... and I also bet it makes you feel good.  Working on 2 or 3 things at once can make us feel 'alive'.

Unfortunately this sense of 'pride' isn't always reflected in measured performance.  Multitasking often means we end up doing 2 or 3 tasks in a distracted, unfocused way.

So for one day at least set yourself the goal of always working on one thing at one and completing it before moving to the next task.  At the end of the day reflect on your performance - and outcomes.
