Multitasking failure Mon, Jan 04, 2016
I've recently entered a stage in life exemplified by my complete inability to finish a single goddamn task.  Being in a new house of course means I have a bunch of little things to accomplish.  Let me just fix this doorknob real quick ... oh look, this light switch is loose ... damn light bulb is out.  By the end of the day, I accomplish literally nothing.  I've found that the only way to actually complete anything is to actively ignore all other things that could get in the way.  So as I'm fixing the mismatched electrical outlet cover, I'll notice the loose railing ... and just ignore it.  If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll write it down and get to it later.  But the only way I can do anything is to only do one thing.  Multitasking is a myth. #lifestyle
