One Stone At A Time

Since there is only one thought
in each moment,
be aligned to do only one thing well
in each moment.

— Shilashanti

There is no such thing as good multitasking… Pay attention to your attention — when you have it and when you don’t. Notice the things that encourage and disrupt your flow throughout the day. Try not to switch repeatedly between tasks.

The modern Zen master Shunryu Suzuki once said to his American students, ‘You have a saying, ‘to kill two birds with one stone,’ but our way is to kill just one bird with one stone.’ I don’t want you to kill any birds, but I think you’ll find yourself much more productive if you focus on one stone at a time.
