A while back I wrote an article about “The Drug of Reactivity”. In it, I examined the problems that can arise from being “too connected”, and posted a video about it (see below).
I stumbled across a similar article from Inc. Magazine that reinforces many of the points I made about multitasking, such as:
1. Dedicate a specific chunk of time to complete each project or tackle a certain group of tasks;
2. Turn off the email and other pop-up notifications until you are ready to focus on just those issues
Inc. Magazine goes on to say,
Multitasking is a weakness, not a strength. In 2010, a study by neuroscientists at the French medical research agency Inserm showed that when people focus on two tasks simultaneously, each side of the brain tackles a different task.
Take a moment to check out the article from Inc.com and then stop back here for a refresher course on kicking the addiction to The Drug of Reactivity.
