Multitasking: Blessing or Curse

7 thoughts on “Multitasking: Blessing or Curse”

  1. I find Andie that my day has been good when I have taken a moment for a time of silence at the beginning of the day. Then my day unfolds usually in a manner which feels good at the end. I may not have done everything I wanted to do, but there has been a leitmotiv of peace throughout the day. When I don’t take the time to stop early in the day, I reach bedtime frazzled, grumpy and dissatisfied…

  2. Awe, your post is too familiar!I am not much for resolutions, but this year I added something to my daily prayer, this is it “Lord help me to really be present to those you put in front of me, as You are to me”.

    Great post Andie

  3. I have the disability of not being able to multitask. I just cannot! Thank goodness I’m retired and don’t have stringent deadlines.

    I like your idea of concentrating on one person at a time so as to listen carefully and appreciate him or her. I tend to “live in my head” and am not a “people person” by nature. Lately I’ve been moving more towards focusing purposefully on others and appreciating them as made in God’s image.

  4. Thanks be for the gift of multi-tasking but you are right – sometimes it gives us the excuse we need not to sit and stare, or sit and listen. There seems to be a lot of wishing life were simpler and easier to manage with friends at the moment. Maybe the longer summer days are already too filled with ‘stuff’?

  5. There was a study done (of course, there always it) but it was saying that multi-tasking is really not good for you, it produces stress and physical issues as well…I was so glad to hear that. I don’t like multi-tasking at all, I have to do it too much at work to do it at home too! Lori

  6. I’m a major multi-tasker. I tried to go on a mult-fast task for Lent, but pretty much failed. I’m particularly guilty of being on the computer and trying to have a conversation with my husband or one of my kids. It’s not pretty.
