One Thing at the Time

#life 1 min.

I have a challenge for you. You will not enjoy it. Honestly, I don’t even think you can do it. Ready to hear it?

For the rest of the day, try to do one thing at a time. That means eating your lunch without a phone in hand. No chatting in slack during a zoom meeting. Can’t even listen to podcasts while running errands. I know, that’s just cruel. It’s even more difficult than it sounds. I tried it on 4 separate days. The longest I’ve lasted was 4 hours.

I’m not gonna rant about smartphones frying our brains or the distraction economy. You already know how it goes. I’ll just leave you with a question. Should this challenge be this hard to pull off?
