Day three of the prompt invites us to write about a story or an action that evolves over an appreciable amount of time and I have chosen to write about the cost of multi-tasking and the gain of taking time to do things slowly.
What is the price that you pay for multi-tasking and what would it mean to be more focussed on one thing at a time?
At the same time
Sometimes we feel that we’re on top
When we are multi-tasking
Two things at once, we never stop
Deliver what they’re asking
We work at speed though it impedes
The essence of our labour
We steam ahead despite the need
to slow down and to savour
The long boat not the island hop
Steers us to where joy’s lasting
It’s all about the mindful crop
So let’s stop multitasking!
