RWR-028: Why Multitasking is a Lie

No matter how much you want it to be true, it just isn’t. Humans cannot successfully multitask. Our brains are fast, but not that fast. Even computers can’t multitask, they just work faster than the human brain, so it appears like they are processing code simultaneously, when they really aren’t.

I was motivated to record a podcast on this subject after reading a chapter out of this book. I literally couldn’t put this new book down last night. Also, it’s 2016, and everyone claims to be an expert at multitasking. So I’m here to share why they’re not. Hit the play button and enjoy!

Best quotes from this episode:

If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one. -Russian Proverb

To do two things at once is to do neither. -Publilius Syrus

Multitasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more than one thing at a time. -Steve Uzzell

You can do two things at once, but you can’t focus effectively on two things at once. –Gary Keller

If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

  1. Good stuff!

    Multitasking is definitely a terrible habit of our society. Not even is it unproductive, but it’s downright terrible for the brain in the long run.

    • Exactly. The more time-saving technological advances the world comes out with, the more we try to fill that saved time with more busy work. Everyone looks like zombies mindlessly walking around, bumping into things, still running late for everything, still “over-worked.” When will it ever stop? Lol.

      Thanks for listening to the podcast and for leaving a comment man. Cheers!
