The Most Important Scholar You’ve Never Heard Of

Published

on

Thomas Sowell is many things. He’s a historian, an economist, philosopher, and more. He also may very possibly be the most important scholar that you haven’t heard of. Thomas started life on his own at age 17 when he moved out into a homeless shelter and later was drafted into the Marine Corps. Later, he graduated from Harvard and went on to study government regulations coming to some remarkable explanations and solutions. PragerU tells Thomas’s inspiring story in this video linked below.

OAN: American Freedom Tour coming to a town near you

American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains what inspired the American Freedom Tour, which debuts in Jacksonville, Florida from Oct. 7-8.

In an interview with One America News Network (OAN) that aired just this week, American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains the inspiration and purpose behind the American Freedom Tour.

The event series debuts in Jacksonville, Florida from Oct. 7-8.

Headliners include Donald Trump Jr., Kayleigh McEnany, Dan Bongino, Dinesh D’Souza, Sheriff David Clarke, and Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman. All speakers will be live and in person at each venue.

“I look at the last five years, and conservatives have been told how bad they are,” Widener explains. “They’re deplorable, they’re racist, they’re sexist, xenophobic, transphobic. They’ve been beaten up for five years.”

“I thought,” Widener continued, “wouldn’t it be amazing if we did some rallies around the country, and got conservatives together, so that folks could look around and say, ‘I’m not alone.'”

So, who is Chris Widener, the president of the American Freedom Tour? Consider his thoughts on mask mandates:

“To me, the mask thing is just a way to show you who’s boss. It’s something so simple and so trite. And in reality, what does it really take to put a mask on? But that’s just such a surface level of looking at it. You have to ask, ‘Why would I have to put this mask on?’ And if they can get me to do something really simple like that, what else can they increase it and slowly but surely take away your rights?”

Additional American Freedom Tour events are scheduled in Ohio, Missouri, and North Carolina. Additional locations will be announced on AmericanFreedomTour.com as they become available.

Micro-tasking, not Multitasking, for Effective Performance

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand; multitaskers are doing themselves and their organizations a disservice.

Much as been discussed about multitasking and fortunately, much of what has been written exposes the myth that multitasking represents. Instead of making us more productive and having a greater output, we tend to slow down on the very things that were trying to speed up on, and we end up making more errors.

Micro-tasking, by contrast, is the ability to compartmentalize and to focus in quick, short intervals on a variety of items that compete for attention — a vital skill for career professionals. Micro-tasking is effective for quick decisions, and for handling routine and short term tasks term nature. Multitasking is the attempt to handle two important tasks at the same time. It is not to be confused with micro-tasking.

A Skill to Cultivate

Some workers have little choice in the short run but to work in a distracting, noisy environment. Some employees, in particular, were retained to be able to quickly shift their attention from one issue to another, focusing on each issue as needed.

In an interruption-based environment, such as a hospital, police station, retail store, or airline ticket counter, the ability to micro-task is a valuable skill. Throughout the course of a day, a manager in such settings might encounter a variety of people asking questions and voicing concerns. For sale managers micro-tasking can make all the difference in making quota or not.

Tasks that require our sharp attention necessitate that we slow down, focus, keep interruptions at bay, and work as effectively as we can, toward completion. Handling two tasks simultaneously, each of which require sharp attention, is a prescription for poor results.

Be in Demand

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand. Others, who engage in multitasking, are doing themselves and their organizations, a disservice.
