Stop multitasking

Every time we switch between tasks, it takes an average of 25 minutes to return to the original task. On top of that, every time you switch tasks, the previous task leaves an attention residue in our brain.

And if we keep switching, the attention residue adds up and overwhelms our working memory — we quickly start feeling overwhelmed.

And yet, we glorify people who can multitask.

Stay with a task. Stop multitasking – always one thing at a time.
