How To Become A More Effective Thinker By Watching TV
I have to admit I'm a big fan of productivity blogs. One of my favorites is the Ririan Project where I found an article entitled "8 Little-Known Ways to Think More Effectively". One of those ways is to learn how to do two things at once. This is where you TV lovers come in, especially if you own two. Check out below how you can be a more effective thinker by watching TV courtesy of the Ririan Project!
"One of the simplest ways to learn how to do two things at once without dividing your attention is to put two TVs next to each other, switch them to different channels, and try to listen to both at once. See how much information you can swallow from each and try not to miss a thing.
Once you’re able to do this well, you can use the TVs to learn how to resist distractions. So, instead of trying to take in everything from both TVs, concentrate on one programme and ignore the other. It’ll be hard at first, but be determined. When you think you’ve mastered it, lower the volume on the set you’re watching and raise it on the one you’re not. If it doesn’t drive you crazy first, this technique is guaranteed to teach you how to pay attention effectively".
I'm off myself to rearrange my TV's!
