Task Switching



Can you switch quickly back and forth from one task to another and maintain focus and concentration?


If you can’t (that’s okay) and here’s maybe why…


“The problem this research identifies with this work strategy is that when you switch from some Task A to another Task B, your attention doesn’t immediately follow—a residue of your attention remains stuck thinking about the original task. ... ‘People experiencing attention residue after switching tasks are likely to demonstrate poor performance on that next task,’ and the more intense the residue, the worse the performance.” (Professor Newport)


So rather than try n oscillate between 1,2,3. Why not stick with what’s at hand…right now?


So take a moment. Think about how great you are. How great you are becoming and what you really wanna do.


See the long game.


Now get line of sight, identify what needs to be done right now and see yourself only doing that one thing until it's complete.


Only that one thing.


Got it? Now go do it...
