This is a hard pill to swallow, as I have always been proud of my ability to “multi-task”. In my previous life as a customer service rep., I could answer the phone, sign up a new member and hand out tickets all at the same time. My brain was on overload!
Often, mistakes were made and I would have to make corrections. By the end of the day I would be exhausted and a little testy. Then I learned the skill of focusing on just one task at a time and letting someone else assist me. This has allowed me to be more efficient and produce a higher quality of work.
I have learned that it really is about quality; not quantity. How about you? Are there any lessons that you have learned from multi-tasking?
