Don’t fall into the holiday multitasking trap! Let’s clarify one thing: multitasking doesn’t exist. As I explain during my interview on WUSA9, what you’re really doing is switchtasking.
You’re bouncing from one active task to another, which comes with a hefty price tag: lower quality of work, longer time to complete each task, and a higher level of stress.
I share a few tips you put into action today and enjoy the holiday season in the interview below.
What will you do to stay focused (and sane!) this holiday season?
