In today’s busy world its easy to feel we never have the time to do everything. There are never enough hours in the day, days in the week to get through everything in our in-boxes.
A remarkably simple and effective approach to resolving this is single tasking. By focusing all our attention on completing one task at a time, giving it 100% of our attention, we can actually be so much more productive. I’m surprised at just how much I can achieve on the days I practice single tasking.
It’s an approach that we can all benefit from, but for students who are just starting out, learning good time management/self management skills and techniques will help them not only in their studies, but in the future. These are transferrable skills they can take with them into their future careers.
I’m not going to advise on how to single task. Instead, I’m sharing a post by Dr Rob Sheehan which outlines simple, easy to follow steps.
How do you manage your time? Do you use or have you tried single tasking? What tips would you share with students/someone starting out on their careers today?
