Multitasking is the opposite of Mindfulness.

Productivity suffers greatly when we multitask.
.
.
We lose focus quickly. Awareness of now evaporates.
.
.
The cognitive engine wants to handle complex thoughts, difficult calculations.
.
.
Focusing on the breath, letting go, going slow, emptying the mind feels extremely awkward at first.
.
.
Many make judgments about their mind not being capable of being quiet, empty.
.
.
That is an erroneous ploy by the “Ego”, a fatal judgment barring any chance for happiness.
.
.
Make your quest as simple as possible, one breath at a time.
.
.
Sit for short five minutes periods without judging the outcome.
.
.
In a week their will be improvement.
.
.
Mastery will come in due time.
.
.
Small focused actions like this bring enormous change.
