MORE IDEAS FROM Multitasking is a lie

DO one thing at a time!

DO one thing at a time! The newest studies show that multitasking is actually less productive than doing one thing at a time with a concentrated effort. Some studies even imply that it makes you slower and – careful now – dumber!

Even if you think you are multitasking you are actually doing one thing at a time, aren’t you? You might have five tasks on your hands, but I’m sure you don’t do all five things at the same time. You are writing an e-mail. You stop writing it and take a phone call. You hang up and continue writing the e-mail. A colleague comes to you with a question. You stop writing your e-mail and answer the question and so on. So forget about multitasking. Focus on doing one thing at a time and do it with concentration!!

The Dangerous Mistake We All Make

We think constantly about our vague desires, without committing to a specific task. 

We go to the gym to “work out” without trying to become better at something specific. We wish that we were more creative, but never work on a particular project.

Inattention caused by multitasking

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.

Exploration and exploitation

Similar to the way you need both exploration and exploitation in order to foster innovation, you need both open loops and closed loops to produce great work.

  • In the exploration phase, you may wander through many creative paths. 
  • In the exploitation phase, you will choose a few select ones of these paths to execute. 

First, you create open loops to cultivate your creativity; then, you close those loops to increase your productivity.
