I smile to myself when I hear someone talk about their multitasking brain. Like in an article I read yesterday. A young business owner said she just can’t turn hers off. Because the minute she finds herself doing only one thing at a time she feels like she’s not as efficient as she could be.
But a multitasking brain and actual multitasking are a universe apart.
Sure, your brain is a multitasking masterpiece. And it can do so much at one time. Like…
- Encode and decode images with blinding speed and accuracy
- Keep you breathing…even at night when you’re asleep
- Get your hand up to answer a question or scratch your head
- Process and deal with pain points in the rest of your body
- Detect if and when your heart’s in trouble
And the list goes on.
But, as amazing as your brain is, it can’t help you say two things at the same time. And it can’t help you wash the clothes, answer emails, and tie your shoes at the same time. And that list goes on, too.
The idea of multitasking is fine. But the reality is that you can’t do it. Yes, you can set the washer to wash your clothes while you talk text an answer to an email as you tie your shoes. But look at those three things more closely. You had help. An appliance and a smartphone did a lot of the work for you.
And even with all that help, you still lacked the one thing big-time successful people will tell you that you can’t neglect.
Success requires focus. On one main thing at a time. Because you can’t focus on more than one thing and be exceptional? And like I’ve said before..
If you just want to be mediocre, by all means multitask.
But I know you don’t wanna be mediocre. Because you’ve read this far. And mediocre people won’t do that. And I also know you started your business with the idea of being successful. Right? Of course, otherwise it’s just an expensive hobby.
So, that’s why I recommend focused training on skills like making the highest and best use of your time. And, as it just so happens, that’s what this month’s (and this week’s…this Thursday in fact) RondaReady UNversity class is all about.
I’ve got some real, down-to-business how-to information to help you make the highest and best use of your time. And if you enrolled by yesterday’s deadline, you’ll get this training this Thursday, June 3.
If you missed the deadline, you can still enroll, but you’ll have to wait for July’s class…which will be another awesome lesson to help you build your own successful business. And if you enrolled, I’ll talk to you in a couple more days. And I look forward to helping you Get Ready and…
