How to Multitask Your Way to Success

man with many arms multitasking

You can accomplish many things at once…if you pick the right things.

We’re all busy, and we want to do as much as possible in the shortest possible time. There’s a limit to what you can achieve at the same time, but we all want to get the most out of the precious little time we all seem to have.

Let’s take a look at some useful multitasking…and some less useful examples that will just make your lifeless productive.

In Life

Useful multitasking: Listening to an audiobook while cleaning your house

Silly multitasking: Applying makeup while driving your car

Useful multitasking: Walking across the street while listening to music

Silly multitasking: Walking across the street while reading a book (I have seen this many times!)

With Workouts

Useful multitasking: Listening to music while lifting weights

Silly multitasking: Reading a magazine while slowly peddling on the stationary bike – who hasn’t seen this one?!

Useful multitasking: Taking short rest periods between weights exercises to produce a cardio effect

Silly multitasking: Doing a barbell squat with torso rotation while standing on a stability ball

With Food

Useful multitasking: Reading a book while waiting for your chicken to roast in the oven (set a timer!)

Silly multitasking: Writing a novel while frying scrambled eggs on the stove (hint: you’ll burn them!)

Useful multitasking: Sipping a protein shake while driving home from the gym

Silly multitasking: Shelling and eating a lobster tail while driving home from the gym

Ok, so a few of these examples were obviously jokes that no one in their right mind would try. You get the idea though, right?

Use multitasking wisely!
