Discussion--Something that we have all been asked to do at some point in
our life is rub our stomach and pat our head at the same time. If you successfully accomplished this feat, then you were able
to perform these actions simultaneously!
Have you ever heard the phrase "Can't you walk and chew gum at the same time?" Well, people often say this to ridicule others who
have difficulty with doing things simultaneously. Some people are naturally more equipped to juggle many different things in their minds,
while some people like to be more focused and concentrate on one thing at a time.
I personally prefer to concentrate on one thing at a time, much unlike my mother. She likes to have five or six things going at the same
time. She will simultaneously be cooking, keeping an eye on the stock market on television, carrying on a conversation with someone, while
reading the recipe for whatever she is cooking...you get the idea. One things for sure, if you are doing other things while cooking you
had better remember to get that roast out of the oven!
