Productive multi-tasking

Posted on November 8, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Busy dad Douglas Johnston says that not all multi-tasking is counter-productive, like his morning walk to work in the morning:

I walk to work, rain or shine, snow or sleet, with Plato, Shunryu Suzuki, BBC/CBC documentaries, David Allen, Stephen R. Covey, Seth Godin, Dale Carnegie, sundry industry podcasts, or other speakers buzzing in my ear. Every now and then, when I want to remember something, I haul out my pen and an index card, and jot down a note. In effect, I’m combining physical improvement with mental and spiritual improvement.
