    Jenny is spot on when it comes to multi-tasking. Focusing on one thing at a time is such a stress reliever. In addition, when we don’t spread ourselves too thin, we can actually see where we have committed to, “too much”. Maria Shriver used to quote her Mom, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, as saying “You can do it all, just not all at once”. Words of wisdom that I try and live by.

      That’s a great quote Kimberley! “You can do it all, just not all at once”. This is very true. I also remember this advice, “You don’t have time to do everything, but you definitely have time to do the important things”.

    Great interview, you did a great job. I love seeing so many people thinking this way, especially if more folks simplify their lives, it helps remove most of the stress.

    Keep up the great work!

      Thanks Larry. I’m glad you like it. Simplicity can change the way we live and experience life. I believe there is minimal stress in a simple life.

    Yeah Multi-tasking can be a good thing and a bad thing. I currently feel spread to thin, Tomorrow i will finish up working on legal documents and then on Monday finish the trademark process.After this i’m going to try the one thing at a time approach.
    Enjoy life alittle:) Thanks for a great post
