I read an article about Multitasking recently which very much cleared my confusion whether to multitask or not and proved that I was right in thinking that multitasking is not very efficient.
It reasons that when you are multitasking, you are no giving either of the things your full attention. That got me thinking many of the people try to multitask now a days. I mean it has become very common to say the least. You are working on a project and in the middle of it you try to check your email as well. Now by doing so you are not giving you complete attention to your work which should be your priority. Keep a time slot for everything. A time to work, a time to check and reply to your e-mails (unless they are very important or urgent), time to return your phone calls etc.
I see people talking on their mobile phones while driving. Besides the fact that it’s multitasking, isn’t it dangerous too. Well that can make another post. So more on that later 😉
An interesting book I read is “The Gospel of Sri RamaKrishna”. It’s a two-volume book written by Sri Mahendranath Gupta known as “M”. The book is about M’s Chronicles of his time spent with his Guru, Sri RamaKrishna Paramahamsa. It’s about the Master’s (as Sri RamaKrishna was called) teachings. It is well written and absolutely interesting to read. It is written in such a simple manner that everybody can understand the Master’s teachings very easily. It is about how/ways to reach GOD. Must read.
Another book I read is called “An autobiography of a Yogi” written by Paramhansa Yogananda. I liked it and would recommend it for others as well. It’s a good read, it tells us so many things which we usually don’t know about life, human body, life after death, reincarnation etc. If you are doubting whether there is GOD, it puts the doubt to rest.
