The Myth of Multitasking
I'm writing this blog while on a 10-day vacation in Alabama. Last Saturday, my wife's side of the family had their annual family reunion. This Saturday, our niece will be getting married. We packed up the car last Thursday and made the 900 mile drive from Wisconsin to Alabama with our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter and our dog.
As I'm sitting here trying to get this week's newsletter out, I'm reminded of the myth of multitasking. There is no such thing as multitasking. You merely switch from task to task. When I'm distracted by my granddaughter, I need to switch back to working on my computer. This results in two things: 1. I'm not focused on spending time with my granddaughter. 2. I'm taking longer than normal to perform routine work tasks. Time to get this done so I can concentrate on spending time with my family.
