The most productive times in my life I was only focused on doing one thing.
The times of most frustration in my life I was chasing several goals at once.
It seems to me that it’s like a laser beam. It works because it is a massive amount of power focused on a a very small area.
Remember burning leaves with a tiny plastic magnifying glass? You’d just adjust the magnifying glass up or down to narrow the size of the beam. The small the beam the more powerful it was and before long the leaf would be burning.
Of course my brother and I would sneak the beam on each other and try to burn each other.
People talk about how a women can multitask. I suppose that’s true. Why does that work for her? Well, her entire focus usually is on her family and all those tasks are toward them. Therefore, she has one focus and doing many things at once for them.
Even in biblical times this was true. Jesus taught, “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light.” Luke 11:34 KJV
Kinda explains why the magnifying glass works. Or mom raising her family. Or you creating a life’s legacy.
