Losing My Multi-Tasking Touch

I used to be good. I mean good at multi tasking. I could do multiple things at once and keep up with them and know right where I left off of one when I moved back to it. But now yeah, um not so much.

Now I become a scatterbrained mess and as I'm sitting here I have to stop and think 'what the hell was I just doing'.

I have a difficult time remembering what day it is.

I think I can max out at 3 different things going at once. Pitiful compared to my previous stats.

I blame it on kids and getting old.

And I think it's time to stop working in the IT world and find something slower and more enjoyable. Maybe I can't multi task anymore because subconsciously I don't want to anymore. I've been there, done that and kicked it's ass. Now I need something less intense to focus on?

I like this answer better than blaming the kids and the fact I'm in my mid-30's.

I'm thinking this will be on the resolutions list for 2010!

Whoa...jump out of my brain please. This line "Maybe I can't multi task anymore because subconsciously I don't want to anymore." is EXACTLY why I think I'm having the multi-tasking issue as well! I seriously had to crack down this week because lots of things were slipping through the cracks. I had to tell myself that this is where I have to be for now, so I need to focus my energies again -- even though I really and truly don't want to.

(I also blame the kids and age though too)

Totally the kids and age =)I'm lucky if I can remember what I did yesterday.
