The Myth of Multi-tasking

isn’t a single great work in the history of civilization, no novel, symphony,
film, or song, that was completed as a 1/5th time-slice between e-mail, IM,

are fully in the moment, you will be amazed at what you can do.” – The

Robbins

“Concentration
is the secret of strength.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.” – Barbara

above his fellows is the one who early in life clearly discerns his object, and
towards that object habitually directs his powers.” – Earl Nightingale

reality — where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.” – Peter
McWilliams

your mind on is critical because you will become what you think about most of
