Believe it or not, being more productive by multitasking is a myth.
While you may have heard this before, one problem you may not have considered is the possibility that multitasking is dangerous.
Imagine driving your car from New York to Texas in passing gear. Your engine could blow before you left the city.
It’s handy for added power when you need it; but, your engine wasn’t designed to run in passing gear very long.
Likewise, neither were human beings designed to operate on adrenaline for very long.
Adrenaline courses through our veins; which is often the case when we, and our kids, multitask routinely.
This, of course, especially applies to today’s teens.
According to a study at MIT, we are actually 30% LESS productive when multitasking. More importantly; however, we are also putting our long-term physical, emotional and spiritual health in danger.
Teaching ourselves and our kids to do one task at a time will make us healthier, and in the long run, more productive.
