Xun Kuang Quote
AtoZChallenge – Xun Kuang Quote

We are an age of multi taskers – and proud multi taskers at that. We proclaim that we have the capability to do many things at once. No? We watch TV, eat dinner and tweet our views out to the world at the same time. We attend a virtual meeting, think about how what is being discussed affects us and answer our emails at the same time. We play with our children and whatsapp our friends at the same time. Been there? Done that? You are not alone. Have you guys noticed what happens when we multi task like this? An hour after dinner, we do not remember what we ate. Those emails are full of typos. Our children complain we do not give them time.

Xun Kuang is saying just that, you can hop on as many boats you like. But at one time, ride only one. In the present moment, focus on the task you are doing without getting distracted. You’d be amazed at how much you can achieve! What do you guys think about this? Do any of you practice techniques for Mindfulness?

  1. I use a list to stay on track and try to only do one thing at at time (though it is soooo tempting to do more). If I focus on one task, it gets done faster, I’m not distracted, and I know I’ve done quality work.
    Thank you for the quote. It is what I needed this day.

  2. My grandma always said never put your feet on two different boats… (the way she said wasn’t a reference to multitasking exactly, but it could be, if we want to interpret it that way I guess)

Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Let me know your thoughts :)
