There is no better time that now to become proficient in the art of MULTI-TASKING. To MULTI-TASK is to live in optimal organization in order to squeeze the zest out of life. As you make your to-do list, (and you are doing that now aren’t you?) think in terms of organizing your list in ways that you can accomplish several things. What gets done while you are doing laundry? What three activities can you sweep together into one? For instance, when doing your taxes it a good time to do a budget review and tweak the budget for next year, making sure there are plenty of dollars saved for that vacation. In the United States we over-work and under-play. It is time to reverse that but in order to make a dent in the amount of time and energy we waste each day, it is important to MULTI-TASK. Organize your day, your week, your month and your year with key MULTI-TASKING actions that keep you moving forward and saving valuable time for playing while MULTI-TASKING your chores. Think about adding music to the background of your chores to enhance your mood. Add some humor and laughter into the mix of daily activity to boost your morale. MULTI-TASKING does not have to be all about hard work, it can be about play too. If play and laughter are not on your to-do list, it is likely that it won’t happen. You must plan for it just like you plan for dinner. It is the balance of MULTI-TASKING that fills your day with positive opportunities.
