In yesterday's morning presentation, Sal showed a short video of sleight-of-hand artist Apollo Robbins manipulating someone's focus in order to steal several items from them.
Sal: This video demonstrates how humans are keen on focusing their energy on one particular event. We often find ourselves multitasking while answering phones, talking to others, or even walking down the street looking at our smartphones. By nature, we are very good at focusing our attention on one thing and excelling in a particular goal. I feel that by acknowledging the fact that we cannot put all of our energy into all of our actions while multitasking we can enhance our productivity. Instead of loading our plate and trying to tackle everything at once, we can slow down to complete goals and solve problems one by one.
