Focus on one thing
This is a simple but key point that symbolizes an important aspect of Zen philosophy. Focus on one thing is what it sounds like: focus on the task at hand without getting distracted. Whatever is in your presence at that moment, dedicate your attention to it fully. It’s been scientifically demonstrated that the brain simply cannot cope effectively with multi-tasking. It might feel like you’re getting more done, but in reality, you’re probably not and the quality of work is undoubtedly slipping.
If you can commit to one doing one thing a time, you’ll be more engaged in each and every moment and more able to live a peaceful and happy life.
Peace and Love, Jim
