Mono Tasking, Is Changing Scenery a Productive Move?
For the past few days, my internet connection has failed me.
While these issues are solved, I moved my office part time to the local public library.
It offers free internet connection, quiet space (which is not the case in say Starbucks)and few distractions besides people watching.
I have a hard time writing in a noisy setting.
OK, their chairs are not as comfortable as my home office chair. You cannot ask for perfection.
The temporary relocation made me reorganize my work.
In the past 24 hours I sent questions for 2 interviews.
I used my old faithful notepad (yes, pen and paper) to couch my questions then typed them and all i had to do once I got to my connected space was copy and paste the whole thing and send it.
Each step involved less distractions than if I had been online all the time.
I was able to better focus on the task at hand.
Did the circumstances make me an illustration of what Douglas Merrill calls 'How to Get Stuff out of Your Head, Find It When You Need It, and Get It Done Right' in his new tome Getting Organized in the Google Era (Broadway Books) co-written by James A. Martin.
