When being focused feels challenging

With everything that is happening around us in the world, concentrating can feel impossible.

  • We then resort to multitasking. But multitasking distracts our brains and prevents us from enjoying true focus. The more tasks we try to do at a time, the more cognitive energy we burn.
  • Another problem is overfocusing. Unfocusing - purposefully letting your mind wander - is key to improving focus. The brain works best when we toggle between focus and unfocus.

The case against multitasking

Every activity we do uses a different set of cognitive resources. Sending an email uses one set of cognitive resources. Reading a report uses another.

The more tasks you try to do at any given time, the more cognitive energy you burn. 🀯

Good apology or No apology
  • Most of us haven't been taught how to apologise
  • Our efforts tend to be harmful: vague, intrusive, demanding, or full of warnings that can leave the recipient of an apology feeling even worse.
  • When the apology is absent or it's a bad apology, it puts a crack in the very foundation of a relationship and can even end it.
  • That's why it is critical to get an apology right.
