Decluttering Tip of the Day

Multitasking is a myth.

When people think they’re doing two things at once, they’re not actually doing them simultaneously. They’re task-switching — changing back and forth between the tasks at a rapid rate.

But is that good? And how does this knowledge apply to decluttering?

Well, it applies in two ways. There was a University of Illinois study of Microsoft workers which reports that each time a person gets distracted, it takes a full 15 minutes to get back on track.

So… you want to go through your paper files to declutter while you watch a movie?

Lemmie tell you… not such a grand plan. You’ll get it done MUCH more quickly and with a lot fewer mistakes if you just focus on the papers for a while. It’s better to focus to the best of your abilities while you’re doing this work.

The other reason it applies to decluttering is going back to the idea that we have limited time in our days, in our lives.

If we’re keeping something around for the purpose of multitasking with it, maybe we should re-evaluate where it falls in our list of priorities in general. And maybe we could let it go, in order to free up some mental focus for your higher priorities, for the things that matter more to you.
