Multitasking is so essential nowadays- we all have so many responsibilities, family, finances, work, things that get in the way of things we really care about. Let’s say for instance you always dreamed about writing a book. I always did, ever since I was little. Then one day I had an “AHAH!” moment and realized I was just thinking about it but not actually putting my thoughts and dreams into action. The book wasn’t going to write itself. The problem was that work was very stressful, my life was full of more and more responsibilities, and I had a newborn baby. I remember I was running on such little sleep and had to walk the baby a lot at night because every time I tried to put her down she would cry. I was so tired that by the time I finally got her to sleep I just wanted to curl up in bed and sleep because I didn’t know when she would wake up next. I went through several months of this and kept thinking that I would just push it off. I thought I could always get around to it one day.

    Finally I thought of a great idea. This is where multi-tasking comes in. I decided that while I walk the baby in my arms in the middle of the night, I could write my book on my phone, one painstaking word at a time. Then, when I had an opportunity I could transfer it to the computer and edit. I was then multitasking and bringing my dream closer to reality where I thought I didn’t have any time.

     People don’t realize that by multi-tasking you can find time for the things you love or the goals you have. I don’t have a specific example to help each of you, but try and use my real life story to reassess your situations. Determine your goals or things you have been putting off and think of ways to combine your daily tasks to fit them in. You will need to be creative with this.

     Because of pushing through and multi-tasking, I am now a published author of three books and one more forthcoming.
