There are some pleasures I like to combine and some that are best savored separately. For example, I love to watch a movie I’ve already seen while reading a great new book and eating pizza. I also like to watch TV while flipping through a book I’ve already read. However, I’d never watch a new-to-me movie while getting a back rub. Too much goodness. Running while listening to music? Yes. Running while watching TV? No.
But that’s just me.
In this high-tech world multi-tasking is almost an imperative. There isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done without thinking creatively – but I’m the first to admit I’m a linear thinker. Multi-tasking is something I do out of necessity. If I have more than two things on the stove, I have to set a timer for whatever is in the oven. (I swear having that third child zapped my ability to do more than two things at a time.)
So how do you do it?
Business: Got any tips for how to get it all going on at the same time?
Pleasure: What are your favorite recreation combinations?
I told you mine…
