Researchers at Stanford University published a study showing that the most persistent multi-taskers perform badly in a variety of tasks. As an intuitive I agree with the results of this study and see this from a different perspective. I have observed the importance of focus in achieving success and multitasking gets in the way of that because it scatters our energy and attention.
To those of us who have always been proud multi-taskers this a big blow!
Effect of Multi-Tasking
When we focus on our goals and the essential steps to get there we find success. When our attention is divided, as in the case of multitasking, two things happen:
* Our energy is divided so no one goal has enough energy to manifest fully
* The vision of our success is diminished because we have other things in our mind’s eye as well
Importance of Focus
As a business intuitive I have also observed the effect of multitasking on the ability to create success. When we focus on our goals, our business plan, are not distracted and our attention is on this vision then our life force energy is not divided in multiple directions. With focus we create success.
In the end we want to see our vision of success clearly, know the steps to get there then focus on our vision and take these steps. The more focused we are the more successful we become.
Being grounded and centered in ourselves helps us to limit the urge to multi-task. Try this intuitive exercise every time you feel the need or find yourself multitasking rather than focusing on your goals.
Find a place to sit. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath and release. Repeat the breathing until you feel yourself begin to relax. Bring your attention and awareness onto yourself. Begin to imagine the most important goal you are trying to achieve right now. See it or imagine it.
Imagine bringing your energy and awareness off anything and everything that is grabbing your attention. Focus on your goal.
See the steps to achieve this goal. Take a deep breath and release. Decide the step you want to focus on right now. Open your eyes. Take a deep breath. Now focus that step.
