I read an article about Multitasking recently which very much cleared my confusion whether to multitask or not and proved that I was right in thinking that multitasking is not very efficient.
It reasons that when you are multitasking, you are no giving either of the things your full attention. That got me thinking many of the people try to multitask now a days. I mean it has become very common to say the least. You are working on a project and in the middle of it you try to check your email as well. Now by doing so you are not giving you complete attention to your work which should be your priority. Keep a time slot for everything. A time to work, a time to check and reply to your e-mails (unless they are very important or urgent), time to return your phone calls etc.
I see people talking on their mobile phones while driving. Besides the fact that it’s multitasking, isn’t it dangerous too. Well that can make another post. So more on that later 😉
