Multitasking

by Jeannie MacDonald  |  2041 views  |  6 comments  |        Rate this now! 

Yet many of us take some sort of twisted pride in doing simultaneous chores, like those competitive eaters who stuff dozens of hot dogs down their throat at one sitting.

This is good…how?

This models positive, “life-balancing” behavior for our kids…when?

So, come on. Give uni-tasking a whirl. That means no more checking voice mails while stuffing goody bags! No more flossing while watching “Grey’s Anatomy”!

Feels good, doesn’t it?

  • LOL!!! I love it! I was driving myself crazy and making myself sick. I do one thing at a time now. Things are hard enough as it is.

  • I left work early today to spend a few hours with my husband before going home to our daughter - and I forgot my blackberry at work. He said it was the most enjoyable few hours with me in a while:)

  • Multitasking is a true addiction! I often have to fight this urge of looking at my blackberry while in a meeting! Why - because i think i can handle both at the same time....which is not quite true :)
