Why is multi-tasking so rewarded in our society? Just go to LinkedIn and read through a few job descriptions, and the statement “able to handle multiple responsibilities at once” seems to be baked in.
Here's my unpopular belief... no one is good at multi-tasking! Meaning, no one can perform at their highest level while doing more than one thing at a time.
And this doesn’t necessarily mean writing a blog post and posting to Facebook within the same 10 minute time frame. Look at this from a project level: You’re trying to multi-task if you’re trying to work on multiple projects in your business at the same time.
If you’re re-designing your website and working to launch a membership site in the same period of time, you’re multi-tasking.
What’s the natural result of too much multi-tasking?
Work that is INCOMPLETE.
If you’re in the habit of bouncing from one idea and project to the next, you’re bound to leave 1/2 done work in your wake.
---1/2 written blog posts...
---Courses that never got completed...
---Partially baked business ideas...
This is not only a waste of time, but it ends up being costly financially.
Finish what you start before moving on to the next project or business objective! You’ll work faster and much more efficiently.
