You’re doing it wrong.

All together now: do one thing at a time.

Hang. Catch up. Eat. Talk. Call. Text. Walk.

Not too things. Doing too things at the same thyme makes u dummer.

I know, easier said than done (says I while drinking third Americano of day). Doing one thing at a time, we do it better. It’s better for business to be less “efficient” and more “present.” It’s better for love, and saves us klesha and forgotten to-dos and it’s better for our heart and stress levels. It’s better.
