What's The Other Thing I'm Doing?

Actually overhead myself mumbling that to myself as I poked around my computer. What a symptom! Always doing too many things at once. Always thinking about what else is to be done. Rarely focusing or paying attention to what I’m doing right now. Reminds me of the story about the Zen monk asked to describe his practice. I’m paraphrasing here. He answers, “I eat. I sleep.” His interlocuter say, “Hey, I do those things too.” The monk replies. “Yes, but when I eat, I eat, and when I sleep, I sleep.”
