When is it too Much? Read about it on Retired on Golden Pond 

I am not sure if I am running the direction of multi-tasking or writing about too many distractions.  On the Golden Pond Blog it was about too much TV watching.  When you think about it there are a lot of distractions in our lives and we seem to multi-task through most of them.  Things are different at our current house because we are still not set up all the way.  

At the last house,  if I was cooking I either had the TV on in the kitchen for noise, or the stereo playing with music. You might even throw in a phone call or two because I could juggle all three things, cooking, listening and talking at the same time.  

When I am on the computer I am balancing email, websurfing, blogging, working in Photoshop, fixing things on the website and talking on the phone. Sometimes the Itunes is going and sometimes TP has the TV on in the living room for more listening.  When I climb into bed early at night, I have a book I am reading, a sketch book for sketching in, my ipod, and the TV is always on for Terry.  Oh, I forgot, I even has a SKUDO book I like to work in to keep my mind sharp.  Wait, how about those folks driving next to you out in traffic? Music is on, the cell phone is plaster to their ear and they are driving. Not too safe is it?
What kind of self control is needed to slow down in our lives?  How can we even begin to enjoy the true beauty of ONE thing at a time. When you do ONE thing at a time, you can put in one hundred percent of your best effort. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. Wow, impressive. 

Could you go through one full 24 hour period and NOT multi-task? What if it is just a personal challenge?   How do we ever come to prayer alone with just God if we continue to multi-task at this rate?  

When was the last time you sat down with your spouse, partner, family and shared a meal without the TV or music playing?  Now Terry and I do that at least once a day if not twice.  We grown to enjoy the togetherness and the intimacy of praying over the food without the distractions and then sharing conversation as we eat. 

Try it today.  Cut back on the multi-tasking and chose one thing at a time to put your attention to it.  I believe firmly we are doing too much and enjoying life less because of it.


“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”- James 1:21
