Human beings aren’t meant to multitask, but we live in a world that demands it of us.
Way back when, we used to be focused; if you were a farmer, you’d toil in the fields from sunrise to sunset. Blacksmiths would work in their forges, singularly focused on the task of reforming metal into armour, weapons and whatever else was needed.
This is not the world of today.
At any given time, I find myself balancing
- my marriage
- my 9-to-5
- Project: Mansformation
- learning whatever I can to be successful in my future business ventures
- working on content for the various side projects that I have on the go
- band practice
- keeping up with social media and a social life
- many, many other things
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been singularly focused on anything for ages. We are a busy people!
Due to this — and the fact that it’s next-to-impossible to plan much on a computer without your attention being diverted elsewhere — it’s good to periodically unplug yourself and get back to basics.
That what I did when I started planning the layout for the website for Project: Mansformation, one of my upcoming initiatives:
Sometimes you’ve just gotta close the laptop (or get up from your desktop — do we still use those, or is it passé?) and switch gears.
You never know —despite all of the tools available to us today, a few dollars’ worth of supplies and a little creativity might be all you really ever needed!
