Multi-tasking has become a passé when it comes to finishing more tasks. An article for the Harvard Business Review has noted down its disadvantage. Multi-tasking makes you less competent in your work, more distracted and less productive.
There are other ways of accomplishing more tasks that doesn’t entail you losing focus and even losing precious time with your family and friends. Here are a few tips:
Decide on what not to do.
People usually start with a to-do lists to start their day. But that is not usually followed as there will be distractions that are beyond our control. Ignoring unnecessary or less urgent tasks is equally important as prioritising and focusing on what matters. Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerbeg and man of the hour, Elon Musk, all adhere to this principle. They only give precious time for tasks meant to accomplish one specific goal.
Becoming organized has never been more important especially at this fast paced, multi-tasking life. The overwhelming everyday schedules and the occasional impromptu events seems more manageable, giving you more control on how to handle your time and bringing you closer to your goals. It leads to more productivity, less stress and more time for yourself and your family.
