This is going to be my first blog post of 2016, and I felt it was time for a non-technical topic – akin to a yoga counterpose. Today I’m not going to let myself out on landing pages, email signatures, social media tools, and the like. What to expect instead? Lately, I’ve seen a lot of posts circulating on social media, stating that multitasking is downright killing when it comes to productivity. All the fuss inspired me to write this post and share my own thoughts on this matter.
When it comes to multitasking, people seem to hold a certain pride when they master the art of it. It’s a verb of status, or rather perceived status. To multitask literally means ‘to deal with more than one task at the same time’. Now tell me, how realistic does that sound? Yeah, I know, it’s a hackneyed verb, and we don’t put too much thought into the meaning when it pops up once again. But that’s also where it gets interesting!
