No, I can't juggle (Joe can :<)) but I do love to multi-task!
I'm happy when I've got at least 2 sometimes more than 2 tasks on the go at the same time.
As an example: I have found myself (and many times!): on the phone, writing a report/list/letter... and eating, all at once. I seem to manage just fine, when it comes to multi-tasking. Doing one thing at a time always seems so SLOW to me! I'm usually trying to cram as much into each day as I can; especially when I'm feeling really energetic. And multi-tasking also makes me feel more energetic!
But, it seems that multi-tasking is not the best idea/strategy; at least according to a number of articles and posts I've been reading recently. These are just a sample of dozens I noted online.
Over at the LumosityBlog; here's what they have to say about multi-tasking.
Another article at the UK Daily Mail about the physical effects of multi-tasking.
And another article from About.com about multi-tasking vs "chunking" I'm going to try chunking myself. Sounds like it might be a good idea, at least at times.
What do you think about multi-tasking?
Do you multi-task on a regular basis?
Do you think it's bad for a person's long-term health?
