The Multi-tasking Myth

Every so often I come across someone who claims to be able to do a million things at once.

Sadly for those people research is piling up that shows that all but a small percentage of people do better focusing on one task at a time.

The money quote: "Heavy multitaskers actually have more trouble focusing and shutting out irrelevant information, scientists say, and they experience more stress."

Busted!
