Is multi-tasking a bad thing?

Personally, It feels like I’m multi-tasking my entire life.

I know I am not the only one out there. (or I hope I’m not)  As women we do our best to do it all (cause we are awesome!), but sometimes…we just take on too much.  Especially entrepreneurs and work at home professionals.  It’s hard not to really, always looking for that next idea, keep multiple streams of income coming in, keep our personal lives and relationships in tact…for many take care of a family, get everyone where they need to be….and I keep hearing about this thing called sleep that is apparently good for us once in a while.

This is the hard part.. to choose, tell people you can’t or feel like you aren’t successful because you can’t do it all (talk about an ego blow for superwoman)  but the truth is…you shouldnt multi-task everything you do.  It jsut isn’t fair to anyone involved.  I feel like woman in today’s world often feel like we HAVE to do it all, we constantly fight for equal rights, equal pay, equality in anything and everything because the truth is it really ISN’T equal …at least not yet, but we are getting there.  So as a result we want to do anything we can to try and prove ourselves, to show everyone we really can do it all!

Just because we CAN do everything doesn’t mean we SHOULD do everything.

FOCUS. Doing a few things really well…rather then a thousand things halfway, is a lot more effective and will get you further.

I wear my cape with pride and want to succeed at being super wife, mom, biz owner, etc..  The truth is every super hero needs time to recharge and needs to take a step back once in a while.  Even superwoman can’t be everywhere at the same time…she has to choose her tasks wisely so she can save the world in the most efficient and effective way :)

What do you think?
