Multitasking is overrated
If you’re like most people you spend the majority of your day multitasking. You’re probably so used to multitasking that you don’t even realize when you’re doing it. After all, it’s a skill many employers look for in their employees and single mothers excel at!
So why is it suddenly overrated? Many people will argue that multitasking saves them time. But honestly there are many reasons why multitasking is bad. The less you focus on a task, the more can go wrong. It’s better to focus 100% on one task at a time and not try to juggle your way through the day.
Focusing also lets you concentrate on one task or thought at a time, helping you create a better result for each task. More concentration equals less mistakes or "redo's" and is a more efficient use of your time.
Many people like to multitask because they become bored working on one task at a time or they are so overwhelmed they think it is the only way to catch up. Also people multitask because they cannot concentrate long enough to finish one task completely, for some they multitask because they feel compelled to always be in a stressful, high energy, mode.
But why is multitasking bad?
You have to switch from task to task. This takes time for your mind to change into the right mindset for the new task. You have to take the time to remember where you left off and the next step.
Instead of multitasking among several tasks, you should prioritize your tasks and break them up into workable time chunks. It is much better to finish quality work rather than turn in subpar work that will have to be redone later.
If you need support with concentration and learning focus there are many tools from simple breathing techniques to meditations I would be happy to share with you. Feel free to email me for more information.
