A VIEWPOINT ON: TIME - PRIORITIES - MULTI TASKING
TIME vs. PRIORITIES
"I didn't have enough time".
A feeble rationale.
We all have the same time - 168 hours each 7 day week.
The personal variable is our set of priorities.
'I didn't have enough time' is code for "It was not an important priority for me."
Our execution effectiveness is a reflection of our ability, willingness and discipline to act upon our values and reality based priorities. It is not a reflection of time.
MULTI - TASKING
"I am a multi - tasker" is the proud comment we hear.
There is no such thing.
What is true is that some individuals are superb prioritizers and are exceptional at rapidly sequencing a number of tasks within a given time period. The sequence is rapid but remains a sequence - one task at a time.
