QUOTES:
[1] Scripture
[2] 50. Stop multitasking. During a meeting–especially an hour long meeting–it’s tempting to take care of a few mindless tasks. (Who hasn’t cleaned up their inbox during a meeting?) The problem is that such split focus makes those meetings less productive. Even though you’re only doing mindless stuff, still–you’re distracted. And that makes you less productive.
Multitasking is a personal-productivity killer. Don’t try to do two things partly well. Do one thing really well.
