We call it multi-tasking. It means that you are able to do more than one thing at a time. Culture encourages it and it can work in some instances. We talk and drive at the same time. We BBQ and sip a beer at the same time. We hold our kids and eat at the same time and so on. But at some point our capacity to take on more things exceeds our physical ability to do them all at once. The same is true with our beliefs and priorities. Something has got to give and we have to decide. To have great relationships with anyone, we must prioritize them and that involves saying "no" to other activities and work in order to say "yes" to the people, the spaces, and places that are our first priority. Our energies align with our truest priorities and it will force you to decide what matters most over what matters less. In order to hear God clearly, regularly, and personally so that we can experience a quality relationship with him, a man must define his priorities and be consistent in his choices for him. He has to decide what are the vital few things he must put first over the important many things competing for his time and attention. God puts it this way: "I am the Lord and there is no other." He is first. What he wants is first. In our flow of life he wants to be first but he wants us to make that choice.
