Is multitasking the need of the hour? Can’t we focus on one thing and give our best in it? Is multitasking a byproduct of modernization and the connected world we are?
We are running so fast that we are getting injured more often. The precision with which work was done earlier is getting scarce. Deep work and Flow are things of the past. We want to know everything, give an opinion on everything and not an expert in anything.
Is it because we are competing with the human race instead of ourselves? We have lofty goals, like get rich quick or become successful in no time? Everyone want’s to be as successful as Sachin Tendulkar, but very few want to work as him for decades to reach perfection.
Our focus should be the mantra resulting in performance. It has taken a backseat. The world is swimming in shallow knowledge and, mediocracy.
