Real Life Examples of Multitasking in Everyday Life

Posted on the 23 March 2017 by Lifecoachbloggers
FOCS, (pronounced FOLKS) is a simple easy-to-remember mnemonic that summarizes the different types of multitasking activities and it stands for:-
1. Frequently
2. Occasionally
3. Conditionally
4. Suddenly

Habitual Tasks has to be Performed Frequently

At work, there are many tasks that have to done repeatedly; day in and day out. One can maintain an excel sheet to keep the list of these tasks so that it is performed regularly.
For example, every day after coming to office, an employee may have to regularly sign the attendance register, check all the customer mails and reply them.

Occasional Tasks Consume Intermittent Time during Multitasking

An occasional task is very similar to frequent task and the only difference is the time span; It could be less frequent such as a fortnight, a month, a year or, may be, even a decade.
For example: Almost everybody has occasional but regular tasks such as paying electricity bills, telephone bills and credit card receipts.

One Must Plan before Starting Condition based Multitasking

Condition based tasks arises based on the decisions made. A simple logic of if..then..else and or…and are some ways to understand condition based multitasking.
For example, when a family member decides to buy a second hand computer, the task of maintenance every year, upgradation of software are some tasks that are inevitable. However, these tasks can be eliminated if they plan to go for a brand new computer.

Sudden Tasks Interrupt a Multitasker

Especially at workplace, an unforeseen task is quite common. These tasks are unexpected but sits in the priority list of the work schedule. Therefore, many business professionals are quite smart and they dedicate a buffer time to compensate the unanticipated task.
For example, a good manager always sets aside 2 extra days to deliver an office project so that last minute tasks, changes and corrections could be accommodated in this buffer time.
