Confession: I am a hard core multi-tasker. I watch TV while I knit.
Talk on the phone while sorting bills. Simultaneously help three children with homework. Exercise while I cleanse, tone and moisturize. What can I say? It works for me.
I used to ‘attend’ to Facebook and Twitter while making dinner. Dinner burned, I learned and that was the end of that.
Until I discovered TED. (Ted.com that is).“Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world”
Now, I hang out with TED most evenings while preparing dinner.
Instead of listening to children squabble over whose turn it is to set the table, I listen to fascinating, creative, intelligent people wax poetic about their favourite topics. Science, religion, pop culture, medical research, wealth, philosophy and teenage brains, to name a few.
