One thing at a time.

Yesterday I decided that multi-tasking is for jerks. I friggin' HATE multi-tasking. So I'm not going to do it anymore.

If you think about it, multi-tasking is actually a really stupid concept. I can't understand why so many people encourage it. If I give all my attention to one thing at a time, that one thing will be done properly and will be done well. If I take my attention and divide it between two things, each thing is probably only going to get done half as well. Every time I add another task into the mix, I increase the likelihood of fucking everything up. Which totally happens to me. A lot.

It just makes sense to take the one thing that is consistently fucking with your shit and remove it from the equation. We'll see how this works out. It might mean that I don't blog or update Twitter as much, but hopefully when I do up date them, what I write will be better. Or something like that.


I must admit, turning people away is going to be kind of enjoyable. I'll get to stick my hand up in the air and say things like, "Can I get back to you in a moment? I'm in the middle of something." Or perhaps, "Hold up! Wait a minute!"

Or maybe I'll make a sign. A passive-aggressive one! Those ones always work the best.

This is going to be great.
