the case for depth
Updated: Mar 10
when i was a teenager, I took pride in my ability to multi-task. i could watch tv, do my homework, and eat at the same time. today, that idea of juggling things is multiplied with smartphones and constant connectivity.
there’s something to say for being efficient…but, what about being focused? what about deeply delving into a single idea, channeling your energy, time, and intention into one aim? if we humans had always cast such a wide net, would we have the profundity present in symphony pieces, epic novels, or delicately-detailed paintings?
maybe next time, dare to choose focus over efficiency.
