I know some people who text and drive, but not me, I blog and sip on my morning coffee. I know it is dangerous for other people to do so, but I am a great typist on my laptop and I look up every now and then to make sure I’m safe. I set the cruise control so I don’t speed. I want to be safe and the time flies.
I can even talk on the phone as I drive the two-lane country roads home in the late afternoon as I eat a snack and put the final touches on this blog, or update my Facebook status, or Twitter.
I was most impressed by one woman I saw who could apply makeup, eat breakfast, brush her hair, talk on the phone, and change radio stations in a blink of the eye. She set the bar high for me.
Tips for multitasking to save time:
- Keep your Smartphone in your lap at dinner and as you reach for your napkin, glance at your email so that you don’t miss anything.
- When you are talking with a friend, always answer your cell phone when it rings, it may be important.
- Text while you listen to your family member recount their day by just saying “yep” every now and then so they will know you are with them.
- When you blog, place a link to another article on the internet to give people something else they can do while they read your post.
OR, NOT ANY OF THE ABOVE.
Maybe we need to work on doing one thing well at a time? Hmm, now that’s a thought.
The truth is our relationships and our very lives depend on it.
