This article brings to light something that has been very challenging for me lately – multitasking, ugh! In some instances it makes sense but not always, depending on what role you have, what industry you’re in and also, what you’re ultimate goal is – multitasking is not always the best way to get things done, nor is it the most effective way; the only benefit is that it may be a cost savings (for a company) if an individual is able to take on several responsibilities that multiple people once managed. However, as this article points out, doing too many things at once may actually lower productivity and has the potential to burn people out. This article gives some very important tips in dealing with what has become the new workplace monotony – multitasking; I’ll be posting these tips in my cubicle tomorrow AM!
