This is not a trick question, and neither am I going to provide a lame tricky answer… like the time my brother asked if I wanted to see how a cigarette could be smoked until it disappeared, and I stood there (silly like silly does...really believing he would make that whole cigarette disappear before my eyes) and actually watched him smoke a cigarette to the line before he flicked it out into the street. Haha…what a tease.
I’m going to answer the riddle similar to how I answered an interviewer who wanted to know the secret for how to get ‘so much’ done at one time.
My answer: You get the easy trivial stuff you can do with your hands tied behind your back, ankles shackled and blindfolded out of the way first. Save the big most important project for last.
“Otherwise, I’d lose my mind second-guessing every itty-bitty task,
or over-thinking the bizarreness of doing it all!”
No kidding. That’s how you multitask. Focus & Organization.
