I want to do so many thing, write books, articles, songs, (computer) code, and what not. But, to do these creative things I have to spend time and thoughts. Unfortunately, I have to many things to do. At least, in the back of my mind I have things to do - like writing reports, minutes of meeting, and the like. These mundane tasks are haunting me, swapping the focus of my mind in any give them.
Swapping takes an effort. You may notice that sometimes your computer takes longer to switch between applications (and your harddisk is spinning like crazy that you can even hear it). Some says that the time to swap (between tasks) may take longer than if you finish one of the tasks and move on (to the next one). Rather than piling all the tasks and do them little by little, I should do one by one. But, I just can't. I am one of those people who has to do multi tasking. (Maybe I am hyper-multi-tasking?)
A week ago I was watching a TV programme on "how to become a champion." There was a professor (from Australian?) who said that one of the characteristics of a champion is the ability to multi-task. Whoa! Hey, I got an approval from a Neuro-(something) professor. To be frankly, I am just trying to justify why I do this. Maybe I am just a lazy person who piles everything and does things at the very end of deadline. No, I am just a busy person. A person who wants to do everything ... Am I wrong trying to become myself?
I've got to get back to my work. There goes my creativity...
