Multi-Taskers: Good or Evil?
I am a multi-tasker and in general I don’t see anything wrong with it. I can clean, watch the little one, do laundry and get ready for the day basically at the same time. My husband on the other hand doesn’t appreciate all I can do in a very short amount of time. He is methodical, quite possibly the antithesis of a multi-tasker. Last week he came home and proudly announced that he read an article stating multi-taskers actually get less accomplished than their counterpart. The cause; they typically have to go back and redo what they’ve already done. Okay, I’ll admit this can be true. While working, I quickly realized not everything can or should be done quickly. Making big mistakes, particularly at work don’t pay. Then again there are times when a snails pace just won’t do. There are other times my husband’s meticulous, detailed style is ideal. My opinion, this world needs both, don’t you agree?
