Is Multitasking Really Efficient?

Huffington Post reviews the efficiencies (or lack of) multitasking. Read here about this much talked about business and home reference.

I have always disagreed with the idea that multitasking is a positive attribute.  Here is why ~ communication suffers, and feelings get hurt.  I know mine do when I’m with someone who, for example, answers their phone during a dinner conversation.

  • Let your friends know they are being heard and listened to – turn off the phone or at least silence it when you are with a friend having coffee and conversation.
  • Your kids need to know you are listening.  Hear their words so you can read between the lines.  No time for multitasking for these important relationships.
