Time Management

Stop Multitasking. Really.

June 5, 2010

Busy attorneyOK, I admit it I multitask…sometimes.  Even though I know that it is totally unproductive.  I know multitasking doesn’t work, but I still do it sometimes.  To borrow a phrase from Chicago, Oh, Multitasking . . . “you’re a hard habit to break.”   But I’m working on it.

When we’re multitasking, we’re really allowing ourselves to be distracted by interruptions and jumping from one thing to another.   And interruptions are time stealers.  – Big time stealers.

So, before you’re tempted to start doing something else while (or instead of) reading this post, check out How (and Why) to Stop Multitasking, by Peter Bregman of Harvard Business Review online.  Stop what you’re doing and read it.  Please.
