If you’re looking for ways to be more productive the answer will NOT be found in multi-tasking! Trying to complete more than one task at a time only slows you down while also compromising the quality of your results! Juggling multiple tasks makes it extremely difficult to stay focused and this makes it more challenging to avoid mistakes or to use your time efficiently! In order to increase how productively you use your time and to also boost the quality of your results you must narrow your focus to completing ONLY one task at a time which is known as single tasking!
To get a better understanding of why multi-tasking really does NOT save you time and why you need to turn your focus to only one thing at a time to increase your productivity check out the following short video!
For most people in order to be more productive you must first put aside your overly ambitious to-do list and narrow your focus to simply one thing at a time! Hopping from one task to the next actually slows down your progress, as explained above, making it very difficult to stay focused on what your doing which opens the door for you to make mistakes! By single tasking, you focus your efforts on just one thing, without interruption, thus allowing you to complete tasks quicker and with a lot less errors! Although multi-tasking may give you the impression you’re being really productive, the fact is you are just busier but not being as productive as if you kept your focus on just one task until it has been completed!
The amount of focus and concentration you bring to any task is typically in direct proportion to how successful you are in terms of completing it! Whether it’s your personal or professional life, the fact is you will experience more success and happiness by staying firmly focused on both your actions and the results you get! Your attention to detail will insure that the efforts you do invest are of good quality which which also means the time you invest will be more productive as well! As we ‘drift’ deeper into the summer months many of us may find it increasingly more difficult to maintain our focus due to all the distractions typically associated with the warm weather! Social gatherings with family and friends usually increase this time of year however, for most everybody, there is still work to be done!

Do the words or opinions of others hold you back from pursuing your dreams or goals? This is something that can easily happen when the people around you project their negative thinking or doubts about what it is you’re trying to achieve! When this happens, it is only normal for you to ‘question’ the legitimacy of your own abilities along with whether or not your goals are too ambitious or unrealistic! Once you begin to lose trust in yourself like this your enthusiasm or passion begins to erode as does the quality of your own efforts! Yes, other people’s opinions can indeed influence how you think as well as what goals you may choose to pursue, or not! Essentially you are allowing others to influence how you live your own life or what direction or path you may choose to take, and choices like these can be life altering!
The question is how to take back control of your own destiny while reclaiming your dreams and the answer to this is discussed in the brief video below…
Whether you are aware of this or not there are people you know, some are even family and friends, who hold you back from unleashing your ambitions and pursuing your dreams! Although many of these people have good intentions, they are constantly ‘projecting’ a pattern of negative thinking and offering their ‘opinions’ as to why you can’t or won’t succeed! Whether you’re trying to establish yourself as a successful business entrepreneur, meet the person of your dreams or master a particular sport, these people continuously undermine your confidence by telling you it can’t be done! What’s even worse is these are people who are typically close to you which makes their feelings or opinions even more meaningful to you! As Bedros stated in the above video, people like this are not necessarily trying to be mean but rather they feel inadequate for whatever reason and take comfort in keeping you from pursuing success because they do NOT possess the courage or ambition to do the same! Once you allow any type of doubt to influence your thinking you than begin to lose trust in yourself, your confidence erodes and your ambitions die! Remember, it’s YOUR life so take back control of it so that you live it with no regrets but rather with a sense of excitement, fulfillment and meaningful accomplishment! Pursue your dreams, provided they are realistic of course!
