Yes. I’m guilty of it too.
What’s that, you ask? Well that ol’ bastard Multitasking is one smooth talkin’ son of gun. No matter how many times I break up with him, those slick comebacks work themselves back into my life.
And I let them break my heart. Every. Single. Time.
How do you know if you’re in a abusive relationship with Multitasking? Pretty easy to figure out…if you have ever: 1. left a room without getting what you needed or 2. left a project unfinished, you are walking hand in hand with one bad hombre.
But how do I stop? How do I free myself from the cold grip of thinking I can do everything at the same frickin’ time?!? If I had a nickel for every time I’ve asked the same question…
This may be the blind leading the blind here (can I get anymore less PC today???), but I can tell you it has to do with a swift move of pulling your head out of your own ass (yup, I can). The quicker the better, kinda like a band-aid that needed to go yesterday.
So here it is, the advice to end all of the heartache and dumbassery (look it up, it’s my word of the day): stop. Yes, just stop. BOOM! Life Coaching mastery. Slow down, take stock of what you are trying to accomplish and frickin’ concentrate. Kick that project/task/honey do in the arse & THEN do the next thing. Stop trying to be everything to everyone. Make yourself slow down and smell the roses.
As simple as it sounds, this shit takes practice. Every day.
But why? Let’s say to avoid a meltdown/constant need for a vacation/excessive drinking…pick your poison of choice, you know what happens when you reached your limit. Stop the insanity (I’m pretty sure that was an infomercial from the 90’s). Make your life this fantastic opportunity that it was designed for. One completed step at a time.
And if you need help, I know this amazing life coach.
