The Multi-Tasking Myth
I used to think I was a multi-tasker, until I had to quit eating while I wrote this. And it’s not just that I had to quit putting fork to mouth (I have never been able to type with my toes), I had to quit chewing, too…just until I finished this sentence. Then I noticed that as soon as I started chewing again, my deeper thoughts dissipated like mist, and all I could think about was moving my jaws up and down without biting my tongue.
It would probably be even better if I could quit digesting, but since I don’t have access to that particular administrative privilege, I’ll have to settle for being semi-productive.
Thank goodness…I thought I was just lazy.
