Finally winding down from four months of incredible busy-ness, I now have more time to get back to writing The Introvert Teacher.
Try as I might, I found it difficult to focus on writing while my mind was constantly occupied with lesson planning and preparation.
I finally figured that it is better to simply stop writing and pick it up again when I become less busy instead of constantly worrying that I had not written much while I was preoccupied. By worrying, I found myself being unable to focus on either my lessons or my writing. Consequently, the quality of both suffered.
This reminded me of an article I came across that insisted that, contrary to popular belief, multi-tasking was detrimental to efficiency. It proposed focusing upon and finishing one task at a time. This was sage advice.
Yet another reason that supports my belief that popular belief is often erroneous.
