Does Multitasking Really Work?

Does Multitasking Really Work?

Multitasking seems like something to strive for and take pride in. After all, you can accomplish a lot more when you do more than one thing at a time.

Psychology experts disagree. The brain thinks sequentially, so when you multitask you are really just moving between multiple projects very quickly. They say there is no such thing as multitasking. It is just a myth. The only way you can do more than one thing at the same time is if one of the tasks does not take active thought, like eating or walking. And then there is the conspiracy theory. It might be possible that the idea of multitasking was invented as a way to make overworked people feel more productive and better about themselves.

The real key to being most efficient is focus. Allowing time to focus intently on one project at a time is the way to go. But, don't take my word for it. Give it a try.

What are your thoughts about multitasking? Have you felt like it worked for you? Are you willing to try something new?
