Just as it is essential to practice monotasking at your everyday routines, it is likewise significant to focus on a specific major project.
During the last year I struggled to pull off many tasks, and I accomplished none. I’ve tried to:
- Complete my second novel.
- Marketing my first novel
- Build my website
- Translate my short story
- Write a blog
- Think of a non-fiction book
- Make a gift for my non-fiction readers
The only thing that might seem to be successful is my blog because it’s an ongoing process; each day, I sit down and write a single blog post.
So, I’ve settled to implement monotasking on my vital projects. It means I won’t be touching my new novel until I’m once for all done with the first one.
All this time I felt scattered across different projects which lead to a shortage of focus and mental clarity.
Once I complete the project, I guess I should take a certain amount of time for experimenting it before proceeding on to the next one. If something is not working as desired and I’ve already moved to a fresh project, I’ll be doing various things at the same time, once again.
