Merrick, NY—Multitasking is a way of life. Once upon a time, we were encouraged to pay attention to the task at hand and minimize, if not eliminate, distractions. But in today’s fast-paced world, it feels impossible to get everything accomplished without multitasking.
But is it truly effective? According to Wrike.com, no. 40% of productivity is lost when we multitask, says the blog: "when we jump from task to task, we aren’t really getting more done. We’re forcing our brains to constantly switch gears, working harder to do things at a lower level of quality, and exhausting our mental reserves."
Or is there a way to make multitasking more effective? In this week’s Centurion Video Series, we’ll examine multitasking from several angles. Find out if multitasking is working for you and what other choices you have. Then learn from computers to see how they most effectively process. Watch on! Image at left: Wrike.com
