The Myth of Multitasking: How "Doing It All" Gets Nothing Done (2nd Edition) (Project Management and Time Management Skills) (Hardcover)
"...multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money. Most of all, it robs us of life and our relationships with others." --Chuck Norris, world-renowned actor and martial artist
Through anecdotal and real-world examples, The Myth of Multitasking proves that multitasking hurts your focus and productivity. Instead, learn how to be more effective by doing one thing at a time.
Productivity and effective time management end with multitasking. The false idea that multitasking is productive has become even more prevalent and damaging to our productivity and well-being since the first edition of The Myth of Multitasking was published in 2008. In this revised and updated second edition, author and productivity expert Dave Crenshaw provides a solution for the chaos of distraction that multitasking creates--and a way to combat the temptation to constantly switch between tasks.
Learn how to actually get things done. Dave Crenshaw takes the idea of multitasking as a productivity tool and smashes it to smithereens. But rather than leaving you with the burden of wading through the wreckage all by yourself, he shows you how to focus, move forward, and free up more time for what you value the most.
In this new edition of The Myth of Multitasking, discover:
- Updated research on how and why multitasking doesn't work
- Worksheets to help you figure out how to manage your day effectively
- Easy, actionable steps to manage your life well and accomplish your dreams and goals
