So apparently I have been doing it all wrong this whole time.  I usually take some great pride in the fact that I can multitask with the best of them.  I'm not saying its comfortable but I feel like I have the ability to juggle quite a few things at once fairly well.  But what I'm finding out is that there are chunks of time that get lost while you switch from one thing to the next.  It's not only the time to physically move from one task to the next, but its also the time it takes to shut down your brain on one thing and then start thinking about the steps of the next thing.  There will always be a moment of review that has to happen to "catch yourself up" on whatever you now need to do.  And even if it is a second, a few seconds, or a couple minutes, if you do this multiples times in an hour, or worse, in a day, then you are literally wasting many minutes of valuable time you could have to actually FINISH a task.  Have you ever felt that moment where you fell into a groove with a project?  This is when you are moving at a great tempo, you are efficient, and you are crushing tasks.  This makes you feel good to be in this FLOW and the better you feel, the more you are able to do just because you have a very positive mindset about it.  But if you get distracted by emails, Instagram, Netflix, other things you need to get done, etc, then you will feel like you are not finishing ANYTHING.  When this happens then the opposite occurs.  You get frustrated that you aren't getting through anything.  It feels like the tasks go on forever.  This slows you down and then you WANT to change to a new task in the HOPES that you can finish it.  A downward spiral.  Well, maybe I don't get into a depression about not finishing tasks but I definitely feel the frustrations of things feeling like they take FOREVER!!  So I'm giving it a try.  I'm going to ONLY check my emails two times in the day, and I'm going to set up my priority list at the beginning of the day so I can prioritize my tasks and knock them off one at a time without jumping from task to task. Wish me luck!   I'll let you know how it goes.:)
