Multi-Tasking With Podcasting

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.

  1. Thanks Marvin for stopping by. Sometimes it’s tough to stay motivated. As writers it’s okay for us to give ourselves permission to take a break and then get right back at it.


  2. Hi Kristi.
    Excellent way to multitask. I should be doing this everyday, but I’ve been kind of unmotivated as of late. When I do, sometimes I’ll listen to lectures that I download from openware courses for whatever subject I need to research for my WIP. I think I’m going to check out the Creative Penn.
