Why multitasking is a scam,

and what you can do about it.

Multitasking is essentially a scam because you can't perform two tasks that require your conscious attention at the same time.
They key is in the word conscious.

Sure, you can read while you walk, or write while you are sitting down.

These activities are a combination of unconscious + unconscious ones.
When you try to do two conscious activities at the same time, for example writing and replying to an email, you're not multitasking in reality.
What is essentially happening when you multitask is that you're switching rapidly your focus between two activities.

It gives you the illusion of multitasking, but you're actually losing focus and momentum every time you do these micro-switches.
To avoid losing focus and momentum, do one task at a time.

You'll have your total concentration on the task, and you'll be able to deliver higher quality results in less time.
A couple of tips on how to focus on one task:

• Leave your phone out of the room
• Have the bare minimum of tabs open
• Don't start another task until you finish what you're doing

One task, one goal > many tasks, unclear goals.

Want to learn how to sell?

Here's how you can do it.

Learning how to sell is a key component in your journey towards mastery.

Selling doesn't only allow you to make money, it also allows you to know yourself and others better.
Selling is learned through experience.

You can read about it on books, watch videos, or take courses, but it's not until you take action and go out there that you truly realize how it's done.

5 things college won't teach you, but life will.

1. You are free to do whatever you want in life.

College usually focuses on one thing: your degree.

Life is different, you can do all sorts of things regardless of what title you hold.
2. You can't cheat.

In college people cheat because it gets them better grades.

In life, if you cheat you'll end up dead, in jail, or with a huge feeling of regret.

Do what's right.

Wanna make money with crypto?

Avoid these mistakes that could cost you your life-savings.

1. Not researching what you're buying

You need to know what you're getting into before you buy a coin.

Just because others are doing it, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a good investment.

Understand the purpose of the coin and evaluate its potential.
2. Getting emotionally attached

The market doesn't care about your feelings. Even if you love a coin, if the market doesn't, don't buy it.

Be kind without being the doormat.

Here's how you can accomplish this.

Being kind is the ultimate life hack:

You help others, you feel better, and you help yourself improve in the process.
There is a big difference between being kind, and being the doormat.

Being kind -> you help others and you grow together.

Being the doormat -> you let people stomp all over you. Others grow at the expense of your well-being.
