"Multitasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more than one thing at a time."— Steve Uzzell.


👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "The One Thing" By Gary Keller with Jay Papasan.


Summary:

Great book on how to take a look at the big picture. The book really drives home the idea that prioritizing is key to achieving great things; it's about allowing yourself to focus intensely on what's most important at the moment. It's like a friendly nudge to remember that both work and play deserve their own dedicated time, and by being clear about what matters most, you can enjoy a harmoniously counterbalanced life.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"The question of balance is really a question of priority. When you change your language from balancing to prioritizing, you see your choices more clearly. Extraordinary results demand that you set a priority and act on it. When you act on your priority, you'll automatically go out of balance, giving more time to one thing over another. The challenge then doesn't become one thing over another. The challenge then doesn't become one of not going out of balance, for, in fact, you must. The challenge becomes how long you stay on your priority. When you're supposed to be working, work, and when you're supposed to be playing, play. It's a weird tightrope you're walking, but it's only when you get your priorities mixed up that things fall apart."


✅ Actionable advice:

Don't think of Work/Life Balance as one bucket. Separate your work and your personal life into two distinct buckets. Each has its own goals and approaches. You are probably very good at prioritizing your projects at work. Do the same at home; write down the most important things, including cuddling on the couch with your six-year-old, or going for an evening walk with your spouse. Start leading a counterbalanced life by being specific. Let the right things take precedence when they should, and get to the rest when you can.
