I’m a very good multi-tasker. My work has allowed me to develop this skill to an extent that I can be talking on the phone while writing an email to two complete different recipients. I excel in completing tasks in efficient ways. I always try to get things done quick so I can move on right away. There are disadvantages and advantages to being a professional multi tasker–first, there is a greater risk to forget; second, the person you’re talking to knows they don’t have your complete attention. Although statistically you get more things done, overall you have developed this urgency mindset in everyone you talk to, leaving you with “get-straght-to-the-point” rapport with the people around you.
I’m guilty of being a professional multi-tasker. Even during my prayer time, my mind seems to wander off somewhere else… thinking about tomorrow. I need to really give my full attention to the people around me. To the little things and also during my 1-1 session with the Lord.
Help me to be more present.
