Quote of the Week, October 14, 2008


Multitasking Is Out, Single Tasking Is In
Multitasking is yesterday's news. Single tasking is the wave of the future. Instead of doing a lot of things at the same time poorly, focus all of your attention on one task at a time. This skill increases the quality of your work, maximizes your efficiency, and will increase your job completion ratio.

I agree. Multitasking is the shortest path to mediocrity. (Unless you're Teddy Roosevelt. The man could read and talk, and probably kill a charging buffalo with his pinky, at the same time. Bully!)
