Stick It Out

Consider the postage stamp, my son. It secures success through its ability to stick to one thing till it gets there. ~ Josh Billings

This happens to be one of my biggest weaknesses. We quickly learn that we must multitask in order to keep or advance our place in the corporate world. Yet, that same mentality can wreck havoc in our personal lives.

Take a breath and focus on one thing at a time. Turn your phone’s ringer off. Give your children 100% of your attention. You’ll be surprised at the improvement in quality and reduction in edits and misunderstandings. You may even find that, by focusing your attention, you’ll actually increase your time and money.

If you are worried about your productivity, I highly recommend the Pomodoro Technique. I use it and love it.
