For the last few weeks I have been feeling overwhelmed with all of the technology and sites I’ve been trying to maintain. Meanwhile my printer has broken (just when I’m trying to prepare for a show) and my laptop is often as “slow as cold molasses running up a hill on a winter’s day” as my father used to day. As a result, I have really backed off from everything to a certain extent.
I started the photography business because of the creativity it allowed, but that has taken a back seat to the networking and marketing aspects – not a good place for me to be.
I read some time ago that one should pick 3 things to focus on, any more than that and none of them are done well. I am going to determine my 3 things and start doing just that.
So that brings me to today's thoughtful question, or in this case questions – it’s a three-fer today.
1. Do you have 3 things you focus on each day or week?
2. Can one really get more done when multitasking or does this just cause more self-induced stress and thus less productivity?
3. What if you vowed to be technology free at least one day a week?
