Part 2:. Multi-Tasking

Multi-tasking, it turns out, is highly overrated as a means of coping with information overload and anxiety. In fact, it has been scientifically proven not to work. To help you calculate the price you are paying for using multi-tasking as a coping mechanism, this part asked you to:

Determine if you are getting the results you like or need when you multi-task.

Find your way out of the multi-tasking maze by: (a) learning to estimate task times accurately, (b) making to-do lists rather than expecting your brain to remember everything, and (c) limiting interruptions and concentrating.

Multi-task smart when you do have to multi-task—that means using common sense, monitoring your progress, and being honest with yourself.

Give yourself credit for all you do accomplish everyday. Count what is done, not what you did not do.
