Want to Know the Secret to Enhanced Creativity? It's Slow Motion Multitasking
I now realize I have to slow down and not feel hurried. Savor the experience, the learning, the time spent on each project. That’s Slow Motion Multitasking.
What it is: Having multiple projects on the go at the same time, moving backwards and forwards between topics as the mood takes you or as the situation demands, but in slow motion.
- Creativity often comes when we take an idea from its original context and move it somewhere else. Think outside the box, and shift from one box to another.
- Learning to do one thing well can often help us do something else. It’s possible to cross-train our mind like athletes.
- It can provide assistance when we’re stuck. (e.g., writer’s block, etc.) Bonus: It helps lessen stasis, stress, and avoid depression.
Simply organize projects by either physical boxes, notebooks, or digital tools.
