To Multitask, or NOT to Multitask, That is THE Question
Almost immediately after the Multitasking post I placed hours ago, I received feedback from one of my loyal lurkers. She asks, "If I don't multitask, how can I read what you write?..."

Well, I did find tools for minimizing multitasking and some tips which I think it would be a good thing if I shared it with those who are interested as well. But I am still compiling them as of the moment. I would not want to give a half-filled list of things I use or things I found. Besides, I would not be practicing what I preach, per se, if I did not try these things out first. Who knows? My Jurassic PC might die on me while I try them out, so at least it would happen to me before it happened to you! Right?

But anyway, I can give an answer to dear miss deranged palmist, and that would be to pencil me in your tight schedule. :) One thing a writer online I look up wrote regarding his schedule is that he spares a couple of minutes reading his subscriptions or browsing. After that, it would be a couple of hours before he squeezes it in again. Pretty nifty considering that he doesnt have to keep hitting "Alt-Tab" and trying to keep up with recent posts as soon as it hits the newstands.

Like checking emails. If you try practicing the checking once before starting work, and again during breaks, and then again at night, then productivity would be on your side. In this regard, one could also filter mail so that the important mails would be the ones visible right away. And you could just check the other folders later on.

There is so MUCH one could do to minimize multitasking and in turn be a very productive worker. It just needs a little patience and habit formation to do the trick.

I am on my way there, too. But I sure know the answer to the question on my title. Of course it is, NOT to multitask. I challenge you, too! :)

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
