How the hell do y’all do it? I can admit I had to be a frustrating child to my parents. I was interested in so many things. I was talented in more than one thing. I learned quickly so I got “good” at a ton of things quickly. I also wanted to move on to something else once I got it down. I was a sponge, the “now what” kid, I also asked “why” A LOT, I’m an adult and I still want to know “why” to every things. I needed to know, and I needed to know the thing after that, and the thing after that. Not because I wasn’t still interested, but for me life moved quickly, so I wanted to do everything quickly. Later learned I could have given things a pinch more time, and it wouldn’t have killed me to master something.
As an adult, I still have no idea how to focus on one thing at a time! But as an adult for some reason, we’re supposed to be able to multi-task. Who came up with this sh*t. I’m like a hamster on drugs, or a better explanation is an adult on a Redbull and 5- hour energy cocktail. My desk is a mess daily of mini piles of different tasks to be completed, it makes sense except solely to me and somehow at the end of each day, everything on my to-do list is crossed off. Now in my professional defense, what I do in my career changes often and changes fast.
For me multi-tasking is merely stopping one thing, mid-way to begin or pick up from the mid point to another, then returning to the first thing I stopped. Is multi-tasking truly possible? How am I supposed to focus everything on one task when I’m involved in 100?
