Multi-tasking is Productive…NOT
It's a little like texting, talking, monitoring your GPS, and attempting to change lanes while you’re driving – something will go wrong because nothing has your full attention.
- DON’T do it in the afternoon. The multi-tasking brain generally struggles hardest in the afternoon. Post-lunch fatigue added to the strain of multi-tasking often causes overload.
- MEDITATE. Research shows meditation makes brains more efficient at paying attention, so there is brain power spare when doing two tasks at once.
- PRACTISE multi-tasking with simple tasks. We can improve our performance when the jobs are easy.
