There was a commercial in the 80’s for a perfume called Enjoli featuring a woman who could “do it all”. The words to describe her day went like this:
I can bring home the bacon
Fry it up in a pan
And never, never let you forget you’re a man….
Yikes! Talk about giving normal women an inferiority complex! Did that woman really exist? Maybe. In someone’s imagination.
I’ve learned that multi-tasking is actually counterproductive. The Law of Substitution says that you can’t think of 2 things at the same time. So every time you do more than one task at the same time, you’re actually working slower and not faster because you have to basically start your thought all over again to remember what you were doing with each task. I can attest to the fact that all you’ll end up with are multi-unfinished tasks! As I type this on my laptop, I have Facebook alerts going off on both my laptop and my phone, a half-written card to one of my new distributors, an incomplete DMP that I started to rewrite, and a Go90Grow webinar replay that I’ve yet to watch. You’d think that after 22 weeks of being in the MKMMA program I would have learned by now! Big sigh……
