"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson

7달 전
Do One Thing at a Time

"The other day I was driving on the freeway and noticed a man who, while driving in the fast lane, was shaving, drinking a cup of coffee, and reading the newspaper! "Perfect", I thought to myself, as just that morning I was trying to think of an appropriate example to point out the craziness of our frenzied society".

"How often do we try to do more than one thing at once? We have cordless phones that are supposed to make our lives easier, but in some respects, they make our lives more confusing. My wife and I were at a friend's home for dinner a while ago and noticed her talking on the phone while simultaneously answering the door, checking on dinner and changing her daughter's diaper (after she'd washed her hands of course)! Many of us have the same tendency when we're speaking to someone and our mind is somewhere else, or when we're doing three or four chores all at the same time".

"When you do too many things  at once, it's impossible to be present-moment oriented. Thus, you not only lose out on much of the potential enjoyment of what you are doing, but you also become far less focused and effective".
