Personally, I believe “less is more”, but I would love your thoughts on this. Our minds can’t be in two places at once – when we think we are multitasking, we are in fact ‘task switching’. This lowers productivity, weakens the brain, and also diminishes relationships.
Throughout my career, I always thought I was being productive by being a multitasker. In reality, it was actually exhausting and took me longer to accomplish tasks. Instead, I took the time to focus on singletasking. Devora Zack explains perfectly in her article, “Forget multitasking: Here’s why you should focus on singletasking” how to become more effective by just monotasking.
