Recent research describes multitasking as paying insufficient attention to multiple things at once.
Another new study found it is even worse than that - it prevents people from remembering what they've done and seen, especially is they move from screen to screen.
Moving continually between screen-based activities, such as texting, checking Instagram, or watching a video may make us forget information we want to remember.
Even though we continually devour information, we will be left frustrated because we're not able to bring knowledge to mind to express what we know. In an experimental exercise, researchers found that people who are less able to sustain attention and those who reported being heavy media multitaskers both performed worse at memory tasks.
Remembering occurs best when it's goal-oriented. The things that happen before you begin remembering will affect whether or not you can actually reactivate a memory that is relevant to your current goal.
Paying attention to your attentiveness may help you stay aware and prepared to store new memories of what you are currently doing.
Corporations have a language that they use while talking in meetings or communicating in email. It’s called Corporate Jargon.
Corporate jargon is a forced and complicated way to express something that can be said in simpler language, and in effect, take less time and mental energy.
Corporate speak may not mean anything of value to anyone in a meeting, but like the Emperor's New Clothes, no one wants to point out the inefficiency and mind-numbing nature of the constant use of the jargon. Everyone pretends that they are on the same page as everyone else.
Multiple income streams can add up to be equal or more than a full-time salary.
Your career does not have to be a linear journey to be successful, nor do you have to be confined to just one type of work.
The full-stack freelancer has proven to be a new kind of stable where the smart thing to do is to have a diversity of income streams.
You don't have to use the same skill set in all the work you do. You can mix and match the different ways you want to work, how you want to spend your time, the clients you prefer, and the frequency in which you want to get paid.
