You hear a lot about multitasking.
Namely, how you shouldn’t be doing it.
You know it doesn’t work. You know it stresses you out. You know you’re not as effective while performing more than one task at a time.
But it feels as if there’s no other way.
So you jump on the phone, fire up email, and try to work, all at the same time. You keep on multitasking because, though the experts tell you to stop, life demands you don’t.
Let me suggest another way…
It’s Friday, and you’re battered from a 5-day attack on your focus, attention, and patience; a battle that started the moment your alarm blared Monday morning.
If you had a plan to begin with, it’s now buried in the rubble of a hellish week that bombarded you with hundreds of emails, dozens of phone calls, and the constant pull of customer demands. Your reserves have long since been exhausted.
Yes, the work-week struggle was real, and though it’s now over, another battle looms next week.
The person who enters the weekend with a clean slate, who ties up loose ends, and who thoughtfully closes open projects will start next weeks campaign fresh, reinvigorated, and ready to crush it. What’s more, their free hours won’t be consumed with thoughts of unfinished tasks or worries over the many troubles next week might bring. They’ll enjoy a truly restful weekend.
This all begins with a weekly review.
I suffer from "hustle guilt" constantly.
For example, I've purchased *hundreds* of video games over the years, yet have played less than 1% of them.
It's not that I like wasting money, or that I don't want to play. Video games are my fav, right up there with cheese, movie theater popcorn, and peanut M&Ms (the only M&Ms anyone should ever eat).
