How a Single-Focused Approach Delivers Results

We have become a nation addicted to the enticing and dangerously misleading drug of multitasking.

You might be hooked yourself.

The popular notion is that by doing several tasks at once we can accomplish more — but a host of neuroscientific research shows that the opposite is true. The fact is that your brain is simply not built to multitask.

In any situation, we're most efficient focusing on one task at a time. But with all the information and interruptions that bombard us, how is that possible?

In this webcast, you’ll discover how to clear and calm your mind, arrange your schedule and environment, and gently but firmly manage the expectations of people around you so that you can accomplish a succession of tasks, one at a time — and be infinitely more productive and effective.

What You Will Learn

  • Discover tangible tools to focus your mind and harness your potential
  • Learn why multitasking is a myth — and how to singletask your way to success
  • Simple methods for tackling your list of "to dos" with less effort and greater ease
  • Gain practical techniques to manage your environment - including people around you
  • Uncover methods to do more in less time with better results
  • Apply fascinating cutting edge science to improve your relationships and quality of life

Only clowns should juggle. Singletasking is the key to success and sanity! While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
