I’m a one-thing-at-a-time sort of a person. I will have many projects going simultaneously, but I typically only do one thing at a time.
If I’m having a conversation, that’s all I’m doing in that moment. Or driving or taking a walk. I don’t tend to fill up my senses with something outside of what I’m doing. While I will listen to music while cleaning, for example, I don’t always. And listening to music is its own activity that I will do without having to heap something else on it.
I like to experience the fullness of my experiences.
Except when I listen to podcasts.
I just have to do something while I listen to podcasts, but I’ve found it difficult to find just the thing to do, because I enjoy the doing of things without having something additional attendant to it.
Ah, but I can listen to a podcast while I latch hook. And in a bit of serendipitous God-timing, the podcast I listened to was about slow-motion multitasking and how it is key to creativity.
