Multitasking: Truth or Fiction

by | Jul 24, 2017 | Beth's Blog | 0 comments

Is it possible for a person to truly multitask? There is some interesting research examining the true challenge of multitasking. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Research indicates that multitasking is a lie. In the summer of 2009, Clifford Ness set out to investigate multitasking. He gave 262 college students questionnaires to determine how often they multitasked. They divided their test subjects into two groups: one group that frequently multitasked and one that multitasked less often. The presumption was that the frequent multitaskers would perform better.

Surprise, Surprise! They were wrong! The multitaskers were outperformed on every measure. While they believed they were great at it, they actually were less productive than those who focused more on one single task at a time.
While this is just one example, there are numerous other examples on the internet. Just Google it once and see for your self. The moral to this story is: Focus on one single thing and complete it. Then move on to the next item on your agenda.
