Anyone from Radio is an expert multitasker. Much is possible during a 3-minute song. 😎
Actually it's best not to multitask. Focusing fully on what you're working on is better. Your brain can't really serve two masters.

The greater the multi-tasking the less effective the worker.

Too many studies show multi-tasking is nothing more than consensual hallucination.

I am able to multi-task with the best of them when absolutely necessary, but I'be learned that at the end of the day I am much more efficient when I focus on one thing at a time, get it done, go to the next.

Multi-tasking is a joke.  That's just doing X number of things at =sum(100%/X) of your focus.

Multi-tasking is a misnomer.  As Candice A. Donofrio said, your brain can't service two masters (at the same time).  You can jump from task to task to task in short succession.  I guess this is what we call multi-tasking.  It is very inefficient.

Likewise, did you know you can't feel pain in two places at the very same time.  Your brain can't receive messages that way.  You can feel pain in one place, then another place, and another... etc... but never at exactly the same time.  

Happy New Year, Paul!

For me, multi-tasking is easy, though I'm trying not to do it as often as I used to Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS,.  I actually think it is fun, though juggling too many balls can lead to me dropping one, and that would never be my goal!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, In this business you have to be a multi-tasker. You're right in the middle of doing something important, the phone rings and you have another crisis. What do you do? I do agree focusing on one thing at a time produces better results.
