Think you’re a good multitasker? Know someone who thinks they are? Here’s your chance to put your skills to this test! In this video, I walk you through the multitasking exercise I share in my live keynote speeches and workshops.


Action Steps:

  1. Download the Multitasking Exercise example file here. http://DaveCrenshaw.com/multitasking-exercise.pdf
  2. In the first row, recopy the phrase Multitasking is worse than a lie. (Remember: Don’t start until Dave says “go!”)
  3. In the second row, write down the numbers 1 through 27; one number for every letter in the phrase
  4. Write down your finish time off to the side.
  5. Do the exercise again but this time, for every letter that you write in the third row, you’re going to write a number in the fourth row.
  6. Write down your finish time off to the side.

Principles to Learn:

  1. When you think you are multitasking, what you’re really doing is “switchtasking”—switching back and forth rapidly between two or more tasks.
  2. There are 3 consequences of multitasking:
    1. Tasks takes longer
    2. Mistakes increase
    3. Stress levels increase
