On today’s episode, we’re going to be covering streamlining tasks.

Many of the topics for this podcast come from a non-safety origin. Our topic today is one of those.

Do you believe in multitasking? More importantly, have you ever been asked if you’re good at it? I feel like it’s one of those questions interviewers ask in order to see how full of bologna you are! I’m sure many people “think” they’re good at multitasking, but in all likelihood, they’re probably not. Why do I feel the idea of multitasking is bologna and that people can’t do it effectively?  Simply put, you can’t ride two horses with one butt!

Can people balance on a ball while hula hooping and juggling?  Yep!  But trust me, even though that could be considered multitasking, it’s more a lot of practice combined into a routine.

What multitasking (attempting to do several things at the same time) actually does is keep you constantly distracted and slows you down. Ultimately, it decreases overall productivity and focus. So, how do you fix it? The 5S Methodology! It has us eliminate all items other than those we need, arrange and use them in the most effective way possible, and constantly monitor the situation to assure it’s been done as streamlined and safe as possible.

The old sayings we’ve heard all our lives have left us clues.

“Inch-by-inch it’s a cinch. Mile-by-mile it’s a trial.”

“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”

And dozens more!

The overarching message is the same with all of them. Don’t try to do everything at once. Instead, break tasks into smaller tasks and knock them out one by one until complete.
