A Little Better Every Day Challenge – The Kaizen Way

A Little Better Everyday Challenge - The Kaizen Way

Today's Challenge: Do one thing at a time

You have a presentation tomorrow and also daily errands of today to attend. As you prepare for your presentation, you check your emails, finish some daily tasks and check your texts/social media. You believe that is the best way to ensure you have your eyes on everything, right?

Wrong!

Working on multiple tasks by switching between one task to another leads to reduced concentration and wasted time due to attention residue. 

Switching between tasks gives a false impression of getting things done when in reality you end up wasting time.

Today, you will do one task a time. This implies, when you are working on a task, you cannot check the email, chat or text that popped up. If you have to close the mailbox, ditch the chat and lock the phone in your drawer, please do so. The effectiveness of doing one thing at a time will be obvious once you practice it.

If you think your friend needs to take up this challenge, do let him/her know. Inviting a friend will make the challenge more exciting. Two is company, three is a crowd and four is a party.
