Save time, don’t multitask

Multitasking is a myth. It doesn’t save time. Countless studies show this, but I’m still doing it. I need to stop. And so do you.

You might think that you are getting more done and saving time by multitasking, but studies show we’re not the brilliant multitaskers we think we are. Research conducted at Stanford University, for example, found that people who multitask are less productive and waste more time when switching between tasks than if they had stuck with one task until they finish. Moreover, multitasking damages the brain. The human brain is simply not capable of focusing on multiple tasks at once.
