I love to do more than one thing at a time. But to do it efficiently takes some thought, at least for me it does. I want to be sure that when I am doing more than one thing at a time that it will be beneficial and that I am not just running around spinning my wheels. The one thing that I attempt to do daily is walk and listen to podcasts. I consider this to be an effective and efficient way to multi-task.
I figure if I am walking that will benefit me in a physical manner as well as spiritual and health wise. So, I could listen to some favorite music and that would be alright but all I would be doing is walking and singing. Now, in order to really get the most out of my walk, I thought it would be a good idea to listen to podcasts. With podcasting I can learn from what I download. It has to be something writing related in order for it to be effective and efficient.
I chose Joanna Penn of the Creative Penn. I love all of the interviews she does with folks in the world of writing. I enjoy the conversations. The guests she has are always informative and willing to share with other writers. I learn a lot when I walk. So, by doing the multi-tasking with podcasting I stay ahead of the writing game, so I think in my own mind, and I am gettting out and becoming more and more healthy in mind and spirit along the way.
Are you doing any multi-tasking? If so, what? If not, why not? I’d love to hear from you.
