I love getting things done and usually that means I am doing many things at once. I love the feeling when I complete a task. I am immersed in multi-tasking and sometimes I think it is killing me.
I start several things, take chores for example and then once I start one task, before completing it I start another. Soon I am doing the dishes, making my lunch, folding clothes and who knows what else.
The problem is I am really only ever doing one of those things at a time and usually not all that well because I am distracted.
I want to be a COO (chief operating officer ) one day. It is one of the many things I hope to accomplish in life. I think it is awesome to be responsible for the way things are operating.
So in order to keep things on track and in order I think it is important to Uni-task.
Do one thing and do it well.
I find when I focus on doing just one thing I get the following results:
I can finish it faster. I can focus on it more and give it better due diligence with higher quality of work. I get more done (depending on what there was to do). I feel better faster. I enjoy my time more. I am happier.
The main thing is to remember to choose to do just one thing at a time. When I find myself wanting to get so much done, I have to stop myself from doing it in a way that will take longer and have worse results (multitasking).
I know there are several articles showing about the difference of multi- and uni-tasking.
