Do you have those moments where life seems to click together?I was at a staff meeting today when the topic of mindfulness came up.
It seemed like a fitting subject for me considering this month’s topic.
Be there at our labors
Multitasking was brought up, and how it is making us less productive.Yikes.
I could have used this pep talk earlier today.I was trying to catch up on paperwork, make phone calls, follow up with folks and work on a powerpoint. All at the same time. Guess how productive my day was…
I feel bad for anyone who has had to share an office space with me. I talk to myself. Don’t judge. It helps me concentrate. Probably because all this multitasking is getting in the way.I thought about this on my way home because I don’t just multitask at work. I do it all the time at home. I’m trying to cook, do laundry, help with homework. And how productive am I? I have a load of laundry sitting in the washer that needs to get put in the dryer. It has been resting for almost an hour.
And how many semi-completed craft projects do I have lying around….actually, let’s not talk about that.Tonight, I wanted to finish one thing. I finally sewed a pillowcase for Lucy with the fabric I purchased almost two weeks ago. Now each of the girls has a Halloween pillowcase.
There’s the saying about taking life one day at a time.Maybe I need to take life one project at a time.
