Do you believe that people can truly multi-task?
Can people actually multi-task, or is the brain really only allowing you to do one task at a time?
Yes, of course, but chiefly because I work in a law firm where it's essential working behavior. But, that being said, one multi-tasks at home with child rearing, laundry, cooking, etc.
To multitask we have to shift our focus because each task competes within the brain. Talking and writing simultaneously is difficult to do—while they both involve communicating, you use different cognitive processes to execute these tasks. Researchers have actually witnessed the brain struggling with the conflict in MRI scans. They’ve found that even simple tasks can overwhelm the brain when we try to do them at once.
In other words, although people may believe they can multitask, the cannot do so with great efficiency and without minimal stress.

It's much better to focus your energy on one thing at a time until it's complete.

Why is it so hard to focus on some tasks and not on others?
