Running around with the kids over the past week and a bit, it’s been hard to keep on top of other responsibilities. I haven’t done a great job. It’s especially true in taking too long to respond and put out fires.
However, I’ve learned to do one thing at a time. That’s all I can do and still be helpful. One thing. Once that’s done, I can do something else but not more than one at a time.
Switching between tasks doesn’t count as doing one thing. I do it and whenever that happens, I usually mess up the thing I was doing and need to resend an explainer. Do one thing at a time.
