Give up multi-tasking

multitaskSeriously. Give it up.

It doesn’t work! It’s only an illusion that it enables you to get more done.

Time and time again it has been tested, and proven to actually have everything take longer than if each task were done on its own.

I get a lot done in a day, and the only multi-tasking I am capable of is listening to music while I am taking a walk. Because it doesn’t matter if I miss part of the song!

Your work matters. What you are working on matters. The people you are talking to matter.

Pay attention. One task at a time really will allow you to get far more done than splitting your attention among many different tasks.
