03 May Break Bad Habits – Multitasking
Remember those notes that you started taking in April? One downside of to-do lists and notepads is that you’ll start to build up a huge list of tasks that can seem insurmountable. You may feel compelled to work on multiple tasks at once in order to resolve them at a faster rate.
Unfortunately, multitasking not only reduces productivity but results in work that isn’t your best effort due to divided attention. It’s better to focus on one task a time.
Solution: Revisit your notes and lists from April and go through them again, assigning various priority levels to each task. Start by tackling the most difficult tasks and get them out of the way. It’s easier to be productive when your day gets simpler as it progresses, not when it gets more difficult.
