I was recently noticing that in the last few weeks I've had a lot of typos. First I had to correct them all (sort of a new 1984 policing group -- The Ministry of Blog Accuracy -- it feels very Orwellian to be changing history. Bwa Ha Ha!). Then I had to figure out why. I'm doing it at work, too, having to proofread all my emails because I don't get them typed up right to start with. All of this obviously makes one less productive in a given day. And I'm all about productivity, no, ruthless efficiency.
So why this decrease in the quality of my typing? Well, I don't know. But I guess it means I've been distracted and trying to do too much at once. Multi-tasking is great, but not if it means you don't get anything finished right. Accuracy is more important than speed, so today I will try to slow down and get back on the right track.
