Opposites attract. This is 100% true for The Hubby and I. We are different in so many ways: foods we like, TV we want to watch, the way we drive. It works for us. We balance each other out.
Opinions On Multitasking
One topic we always disagree on is whether #multitasking is a)possible b)productive.
The Hubby’s opinion:
Multitasking is not only possible, but that if you are incapable of doing more than one thing at a time you should consider some type of brain training (like Lumosity or something). He also likes to point out, very proudly, when he is multitasking.
You can’t actually do two things at once. By trying to multitask we are killing our productivity levels. I also like to point out the mistakes he is making while he is “multitasking”.
This teasing is all in fun. And, until recently, I thought my opinion was just that: my opinion.
What are other’s opinion?
I short time ago I had an idea that this would be a great blog post. Show the two sides and see what others were thinking about multitasking.
As soon as I started researching for the post I realized there was way more information than one blog post could hold. I had no idea there was so much information out there, including real scientific studies showing how unproductive multitasking really is.
Rather than try to condense the information, or leave some out, I decided to break the information down into several emails and bundle them up as an e-series.
I am happy to say that this past week I put the final touches on the project and sent it out into the wide web. I’m excited to share my thoughts and research.
I am also happy that my marital differences can be turned into something useful. 😉
