Sometimes I think the best way to get things done is to be distracted, especially while multitasking. It seems counterintuitive, but I really think that the absence of focus upon one thing allows the brain to work on multiple things at its own pace.
I have about a dozen things on my mind, as usual, and the most random good ideas about them pop into my head at the most random times. I don’t think this would happen if I was focusing on only one of them. I think it’s the freedom I’ve given my brain that’s allowing for this to happen.
Best of all, I’m heading to a banquet right now, which is prime distracted thinking time.
