Our brain can only focus on one thing at a time. According to recent research, only 2% to 2.5% of the population can Multitask successfully. While it feels good to make yourself feel you are multitasking, in reality, you are lowering your efficiency and ability to focus. Multitasking is bad for our brain because the brain gets disturbed while multitasking and cannot filter irrelevant information. Multitasking is prone to losing focus, being less productive, and leading to errors.
If you don’t fall into 2% to 2.5% of the population, why not do a single task at a time? It is good for your brain as well as for your work. You can finish your work efficiently in a better manner. Make a list of tasks you have to accomplish in a day and start doing it according to priority. Complete one task and then start another.
5. Surround yourself with Positive People
If you are failing in your life, don’t blame yourself, do not be tough on yourself. Instead, ask yourself what is it that’s dragging you down? Check on what sort of people you are surrounded with. You are not a problem, the bad company you are having, and the negativity you are encircled with is a real problem. Once you realize what sort of people you are spending your time with, and what is it you need to avoid, your life will automatically be in the right direction.
