Morning Musings: Do One Thing

by Frank Martin

Do one thing.

Then stop. Breath in. Breath out. Then go on to the next task.

As the turn of the last century approached, and technology advanced, multitasking became the word of the day. Check e-mail and take a phone call at the same time. Watch YouTube and working on your history paper. Take a walk with an iPod blaring. Sadly, multi-tasking is a pipe-dream. We’ve become more distracted and worn down in large part because we’ve tricked ourselves into thinking we can do multiple tasks at the same time.

So today, try doing just one thing. What that one thing is doesn’t matter, as long as you aren’t doing anything else. Do this, and that one task may just be the highlight of the day. Yes, this does relate back to time travel.
