If an alien race was to study us, they’d certainly conclude that we are a society of multitaskers. Present day technology has amplified our multitasking habits – we’re constantly wired, doing more things at once than we should. Our minds are scattered and our work suffers for it. Not only are we less efficient, but our ability to put our best work forward is diminished.
Can you imagine having the focus and dedication to do one thing at a time, as if nothing else exists? Can you imagine being so into the present task that nothing else matters? Imagine how everything else – your coworkers’ demands, your long to-do list, your inbox, your phone – fades in the background as you dedicate your full attention to one task. Only one task.
