Description
Content

Managers who brag about their multitasking skills are less productive than those who don't multitask. It is a scientific fact that our brains do not multitask. Like computers, they process information sequentially by switching quickly back and forth between tasks. Attempting to do more than one task at a time increases the cognitive load in your brain, depleting its available power. To cope effectively with today's workload, distractions, and information explosion, you must practice a strategy foreign to most modern managers - monotasking. This book tells you how.
