Noncommitment and multitasking

Noncommitment and multitasking

Multitasking is basically the act of refusing to prioritize one thing over everything else. It’s non-commitment on a micro-scale.

Leaving our options open

We have a limited amount of willpower, and if we leave our options open, we have to use our willpower constantly. We are much better off removing choices and creating routines that preserve our willpower.

The key to committing to a goal is to understand that taking options away from yourself actually opens up more possibilities for yourself.
