How (and Why) to Stop Multitasking

Too much work! Businessman juggling.

Doing several things at once is a trick we play on ourselves, thinking we’re getting more done. In reality, our productivity goes down by as much as 40%. We don’t actually multitask. We switch-task, rapidly shifting from one thing to another, interrupting ourselves unproductively, and losing time in the process.

Peter Bregman tells us How (and Why) to Stop Multitasking. I realize this won’t stop anyone from multitasking, but I thought it was an interesting read!

Use Your Time Wisely

I was thinking about how best to use my time off today and thought that while I’m thinking I would make some notes. I’ve had something sitting on my desk for about two weeks now that needs to get done. I know that once I focus my attention on it I will spend about an hour on it and then it will be done. Why have I been wasting my time on other things when I could easily get this one task completed and off my “To-Do List?” I often find myself working on something because it’s “convenient,” or seems more “fun” or “interesting.” It seems that my time would be better spent if before beginning a task I gave some thought to the importance of what it is I’m starting to do. Will this task generate revenue? Is this task necessary because of a deadline, like paying bills on time? Is there something more important I could be doing? Asking these and other questions every time I begin a task could actually make me more productive.

Make a list

Got some things you need to get done? Make a list. It’s not hard. It is hard to remember everything you have to do without a list. Write it down. This works for the young and the old, in spite of what your kids tell you. Once you have a list it’s a good idea to prioritize the things you want to do. This will help you avoid wasting time. I also like to put things in what I call “My driving order.” With the cost of gasoline rising again, it makes sense to order your tasks in a way that makes driving sense. Don’t run an errand in the south part of town, go to the north and then back to the south. Put all your “south” tasks together. Once you have you list, use it! Don’t forget to look at it. Often.
