In this episode, host Robin Masiewicz and regular guests Jamie and Gloria continue their discussion about learning to focus on one thing at a time and doing tasks more consciously. Robin talks about Zen Tasking and eliminating distractions. The group also talks about Zen driving, hypermiling, and the advent of self-driving cars.
Key points from this episode:
Focus on one thing at a time, and give it your full attention
When we try to multi-task, what actually happens is we end up switching back-and-forth between tasks, paying less attention to both.
The more you switch back-and-forth, the more time you waste and the lower your quality of work
Distractions such as cell phone and text messaging are addictive, but you can train yourself not to respond to every ping or poke.
Schedule time for yourself; give yourself some uninterrupted time to work, relax, or reflect

Great tips from the Sarasota Zen Study Group on “How to uni-task in a multitasking world“.
The West-Memphis native has been singing gospel music since the age of five.
"Actually my mom and dad, they heard me singing around the house and were like, it's something that God has given her," Carr said of her vocal savvy.
From home, Carr would go on to use her God-given talent in her local church, and then around the country.
Without any formal training, her father Allen Carr said he knew early on his daughter's gift was something special.
"One day her and her brothers and sisters were singing and she stopped them and said, ' All are singing out of key,'" he said.
He went on to say, "It just caught us off guard and it was so amazing to see a five-year-old (say) hey, we're out of key, let's get this thing right."
Not only has Jekalyn Carr met gospel music greats, she has sung with them, including the artist she most admires.
"It has to be Kim Burrell," she said. "She's my favorite."
In addition to her music, Jekalyn Carr is also a motivational speaker. She receives so many requests for appearances, her parents decided it was best to home school her to accommodate her rigorous schedule.
"My parents, they have invested a lot into me and into my ministry and you think, wow, it's just amazing to have the parents that I have."
She has already released one CD, "Promise", and is hard at work on her next project.
Jekalyn Carr said singing is her passion, and it is what she plans to do for a long time to come.
"I remember telling my dad that singing was my passion. This is what I always wanted to do, and I also want to be a fashion designer and act," she admitted while laughing.
