NO multi-tasking allowed. 40 Do things well the first time.
When you clean up clutter, you don't know where to begin. When you try to DO a To Do list, you are overwhelmed. Repeat after me: “Multitasking means doing many things poorly. I'm going to do one thing well at a time!” Do one thing at a time. And do it completely or you'll just have to do it again.
Sometimes it's possible & beneficial to do two things at once. For example you can play an audio book or enjoy music while walking or watch TV while working out. However there are times when it pays to single thread. For instance you should not be talking on a cell phone or texting while driving.
Sometimes multitasking takes more time than if the tasks were done one by one & yields poor results. Recognize which method is suitable for which task. If you can multitask the items great, but if you are trying to multitask & know you should be single threading STOP do one thing then the other.
Try to plan to go to several places during the same trip. Make a loop so that you save gas and time by multi-tasking. It takes more energy because you are gone longer, but it actually saves you time and money in the long run.
