Multitasking Myth

Multitasking is not natural. We were not designed as human beings to do many things at once.

Walk and chew gum?


Drive our cars and text? Raise our children and work at home? Clean the house and write the great American novel?


It is time we all realized that as wonderful as we are as human beings, we are not designed to do two things at once and do them both spectacular! Instead, what usually happens is both task end up being done half as well, with less attention, and enjoyment.

Are we capable of having many talents? Of course! It is just we can not do them all in the same moment, as well as when we focus on each task at hand and stick with it until it is completed. Only then can we move onto the next task and give it our undivided attention.
