Pick up juggling as a hobby and watch your writing and newsletter organization improve
At Ohio State University Medical Center, the person who would later be my boss asked me, “Do you juggle?” I was young, scared and obviously not too bright, so I responded “No,” paused a moment and then added: “And I won’t sing at the office Christmas party either!”
She laughed and so did I, a bit nervously. But I had no idea what she was talking about. The concept of multitasking was relatively new then—at least to me.
Through the years I’ve taught hundreds of adults and children to juggle—even those who swore it was too difficult for them to learn. The goal’s always been that after 45 minutes, everyone in the juggling class will be able to throw the three-ball cascade, which is the basic juggling pattern. By the time the bell has rung, that’s usually the case. Some may have learned more, but almost everyone has that basic concept.
