107 – Slow Down to Speed Up

Backstory

I’m here at my office at 10pm while my computer is reinstalling our documentation software and it’s my fault.

Uggh, I was so certain I was doing it right.  But something seemed different and I was confident I was tech saavy enough to still get the job done.  And I would have.  But, it wasn’t ready.  I didn’t listen to the voicemail from the software company saying they uploaded the software but needed some things first.

So, here I am fixing my mistake from rushing.

My kids suffer from this too!  They rush through their homework time and time again and end up having to erase it all and start again.  They pay the price of rushing through things.

And yet, we’re addicted as a society with distractions and multitasking.  And the cure to real productivity is actually slowing down and focusing on one thing at a time.

Funny to even consider when you’re a parent, I know!  I get that sometimes you have to cook, while you hold a baby and comfort an owie all at the same time.  But when you can, as often as you can, set a timer and try to focus on only one task at a time!
