Episode 49: Escape The Multitasking Trap

Ever feel like you’re always busy but not getting much done? In this episode, host Jimmy Burroughes explores multitasking and its effect on how well we work. We look at three ways people multitask and how recent insights challenge this widespread notion and suggest that the key to true productivity lies not in doing more but somewhat less – at least at once. This is where the concept of monotasking comes into play, shedding light on a more efficient approach to managing our professional lives. It lets you fully concentrate on a task, leading to better quality work, increased productivity, and reduced stress.
