Living in the Moment

Fellow overly- productive practitioners  — do you regularly grade  yourself on how well you multi task?  Do you view it as a badge of professional honor?

This weekend I had a long overdue epiphany: There’s probably greater value in living in the moment    Multi-tasking, by its very nature, removes us from the immediate. It takes even the best of us on simultaneous attention detours. It robs us of deeper thinking and mental exploration in favor of more superficial attention to a task or conversation.  I for one am now committing to reducing my addiction to multi-tasking and doing a better job of listening, absorbing, appreciating and concentrating on one call, one email exchange, one face-to-face conversation at a time. I will not be texting , writing an email or  thinking about dialing my next call while you are talking to me.

What are your thoughts from your perch?

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
