Save a goldfish – stop trying to multitask! You’ll preserve your creativity, too.
Multitasking is the antithesis of focus. I’ve listed my previous posts on multitasking below in case you haven’t read them all or want a refresher.
If you are tempted to try to multitask just this once or get so busy you accidentally slide into shifting your attention among multiple tasks, I recommend you pause to read one or two of these posts. (They all are entertaining and educational if I do say so myself, but I have to confess that my personal favorite is “Squirrel!” Let me know which one you like best. )
If you’re part of an organization (as an employee, volunteer or member) that still thinks multitasking is a virtue, let me first extend my sympathy and encouragement to buck the trend as much as you can.
Second, I offer you this ray of hope: I’ll be available in 2014 to deliver “The Myth of Multitasking.” This engaging, humorous and life-changing presentation will help your organization stop wasting time, burning people out and jeopardizing safety. Just email me (Rosanne@RosanneBane.com) if you’re interested.
And now without further ado, here’s the list of multitasking posts. Enjoy!
