when doing less means achieving more.


who ever said multitaskers are the best? this study proves otherwise.

a friend posted this link (in Facebook) from Standford indicating that being a MEDIA multi-tasker may not be the way to go. (HA! FINALLY!) this applies to the current work setting where we are bombarded by different media (ipod, computer,cell phones, facebook, etc.)

a lot of times i've been told to multi-task, and that for some companies, they prefer people who multi-task. at one point (or should i say, most of the time,nah, ALMOST ALWAYS) i've thought to myself that doing A LOT of things AT THE SAME TIME would not be really beneficial as one would tend to focus, or should i say, not focus at the task at hand.

in my own opinion, doing a lot of things at the same time would force one to start something, and might not be able to finish one task AS multitasking tends to have someone to start several things at the same time. i'm not saying that being multitasker is a bad thing, i'm just saying that doing several things ALL AT THE SAME TIME gives the brain a lot of stress. (parang dahil sa sobrang daming ginagawa and/or iniintindi, nalilito si brain on what to do/ focus on, etc).
bottomline is, there are a lot of things to do at hand. focus on one and finish it BEFORE doing others :) this might not be the "ideal" for some bosses, but i believe this is more healthy AND more efficient :) para lang yang training for a race. focus on one goal, achieve that goal. and then move on to the next task at hand.

maybe that's the secret of the successful people (those who weren't pressured to 'multitask' haha).

agree? APIR!

  1. Super agree ako dito! One task at a time.

  2. It's the women who are multi-taskers; men are more compartmentalized in their thought process(ayan lumalabas ang pagka Psychology major ko!). Personally, ako I like variety sometimes. I get bored doing the same thing lalo na kung ilang days ko ng ginagawa. Even with books, I don't just stick to one. Bottomline, if multi-tasking works for you then do it! If not, di wag. Ok pa rin yun. Hehe.

Maximizing Potentials

Running has always been my favorite me-time activity. It does not only help me clear my mind, it also helps release toxins from my body. Even though running has been my 'sport' and therapy since 2009, I still have not maximized my potential with this sport.

Tonight, I tried to rekindle my love affair with running by jogging (yes, jogging, the slower version of running?) around UP acad oval. I said to myself, just one round of continuous jogging, and I'm done. Mahirap nang mabigla ang katawan, baka may sumakit pa kinabukasan, etc. So I did na my slow jog, and as I was getting into the groove of things, it slipped my mind that my intial goal was only to do one round.

Slowly and surely, the endorphins started kicking in, and I was trying to shuffle my feet faster, slowly increasing my pace, but still a managable one for someone trying to get my groove back. There have been times when I felt a bit of discomfort, maybe because it has been quite a while since I last had a decent…

why do i hate mizuno

Mizuno sucks. BIG TIME.

yup. you read that right. why?

point #1: they are not a mainstream brand.

mainstream in a sense that they don't even have well-known product endorsers unlike other sports brands around the world. i mean, how can they expect their products to sell like pancakes if they're like that diba?

point #2: they do not promote much of themselves.

not much print ads if you'd ask me. i work in a magazine publishing company and i don't see much of their products splashed all over our magazines. i don't see them having television ads too. not even in the newspapers does mizuno have anything that will lead people to buy their products.

point #3: the products are not that "fashionable."

as compared to other "mainstream" brands, you won't see your regular juans and marias wearing mizunos together with their jeans to the office. you don't see them usually wearing mizunos when they go around the malls, walking, shopping, chilling out. nope.…
