MULTITASKING

I was hoping retirement would allow me the luxury of NOT multitasking.  Simply focusing on one thing.  When I talk on the phone, I only want to talk.  Not drive and talk.  Not scroll and talk.  Not Facebook and talk.  Not text and talk.  Some things CAN be multi tasked.


TV ... I can fold laundry or clean while watching.  I can waste time, be unproductive, and procrastinate all at once.  In fact, I'm thinking of trying to get this to be an Olympic sport.  What do you think?  Winter or Summer?  Triathlon! 


Seriously.  I've recently discovered another few things I can do simultanously  ... cough, laugh, sneeze and pee.  Or any combination of two.  I'm officially old ....

  1. That last one---cough, laugh, sneeze and pee---is a classic. LOL

    The other day I was watching a video online, watching a program on TV and writing a blog at the same time and I literately shook my head and said, "This is crazy! Pick one!"

    1. EXACTLY! Better to do a good job with ONE rather than three half assed jobs!

  2. I don't have a cell phone, so I don't get caught up in the texting, calling, picture taking or any of that. I do a real good job with the last 4 however!

  3. Loved this: "I can waste time, be unproductive, and procrastinate all at once." Ha!
    I've got the sneezing and peeing thing down.
