Some scientists from the Institute for Work and Health blah blah in Berlin determined this week that multitasking can lead to poor performance in the workplace. Well, I can’t say I agree as much as I don’t have a choice! I am usually doing a billion things a second at work, and after some time, you really get the hang of it and it makes it all way more efficient. If I had to do just one thing at a time, I’d probably go mental.
-1. A maniac. I am not home enough, so when I get there I always have a lot to do. I run around the apartment like a loonie.
Option A- I set the bread, on high, I go about my business, totally forget about it: now it’s BURNED. FAIL.
Option B- I set the bread, on low, I go about my business, and then two days later I find the half toasted bread still in the toaster. FAIL. See?
-Escapism: I need to forget about “stuff”
-Process: I need to think and digest “stuff”
-Decison Making: I need to choose/make a determination on “stuff” (I have mastered the “will not worry about this now, I will think about it in my next run” system)
-Share: I need to catch up with “whoever”
-Unshare: I need some alone time!
-Enjoy: I am going to just relax and feel the sun and enjoy these songs (that’s the so called “glorious run”, usually in the sundown by the Hudson with the perfect soundtrack)
-Revisit/Destination Run: I can’t wait to be back on the trails, on the Westide Highway, over the GWB bridge, in Park Avenue, to see the autumn trees…
