That’s great! Thinking about putting it in my e-mail signature for all MTB (multi-tasked Burnout) friends. 🙂 ~MKP powerofslow March 24, 2010 at 7:24 pm Reply Yes, please do! Spread the word any way you can! I’ll be doing a piece on multitasking for soon. Maria Pinochet March 24, 2010 at 9:05 pm Reply Great Visual! I can see in the image all those folks going “back and forth.” Seems true that when we are in a hurry, that is when we forget the keys or that all important file for the meeting. Us slow, most likely checklist using, individuals move at a slower pace, however, we find no need to retrace our steps. powerofslow March 25, 2010 at 6:37 am Reply Thank you, Maria! I find it to truly illustrate the point that rushing back and forth takes more energy and time! Whenever I’m in a hurry, I find I lose my keys constantly! I call it the lost key syndrome. As a matter of fact, I recently found my keys in the trash. Now that’s distraction! 🙂 Maria Pinochet March 29, 2010 at 2:42 pm Reply Amazing that you thought to look for your keys in the trash! You must have really had the power to slow the mind in order to remember such an occurrence. powerofslow March 29, 2010 at 3:36 pm Reply I took a moment, slowed down and retraced my steps. It was a true power of slow moment! Leave a Reply Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email. Δ This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
