Singletasking

These days we are hit with information from all directions and have to constantly change focus, switch between tasks.  Multitasking maybe more efficient for computers but I don’t think this applies to humans.  Not only is it lees efficient but it is also more stressful.  Singletasking does not mean you do only one task per day, it is a way of prioritizing your task list.  You will be surprised how quickly that list gets reduced in size.

If you want read more about this you can go to FreelanceAdvisor.co.uk they have an interesting article on how not to multitask.  Lifehacker also have an article A Case for Singletasking.

I created a template from the picture in the Lifehacker article if you want to try it out, when printing select 8 pages per sheet on the bottom right of the print window.

I will do one thing today template
