"Dangers of Multi-tasking"

To Do
"But this one thing I do...I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:13,14

"A weakness of all human beings, " Henry Ford said, "is trying to do too many things at once. That scatters effort and destroys direction.  It makes for haste, and haste makes waste.  So we do things all the wrong ways possible before we come to the right one. Then we think it is the best way because it works, and it was the only way left that we could see.  Every now and then I wake up in the morning headed toward that finality, with a dozen things I want to do.  I know I can't do them all at once."
    When asked what he did about that, Ford replied, "I go out and trot around the house. While I'm running off the excess energy that wants to do too much, my mind clears and I see what can be done and should be done first."
    Don't get overwhelmed today with a thousand things to do.  Our world is set on multi-tasking, but no one can do several things at once and do them well.  Focus on the main thing that must be done and do it.  When that is accomplished, then move to the next priority.  If you will ask God for wisdom, He will give it to you.  Life does not have to be an overwhelming experience.  You can achieve great things if you will focus on the main things.  Use your extra energy walking with God everyday, and ask Him for direction for the day and it will be yours.
