We Cannot Multitask


We can try to do many things distractedly.

We can try to improve how quickly we switch from task to task.

We can be stressed and wear our busyness as a red badge of courage.

But let’s be clear: we cannot multitask. We cannot multitask. We cannot multitask.

Rather than trying to get good at squeezing more and more in, let’s get great at picking the best things to do and do well. At the end of the day, that and not busyness is what brings in the desired results…always.


In your corner,

  1. Thank you, thank you, THANK you! Sometimes I feel like apologizing for not being good at, and not wanting to multitask. I am the luddite who doesn’t want to be constantly interrupted by the bleeping of the next email or text coming in (when I know all the research says multitasking is inefficient and stressful). Your note was a breath of fresh air.
