Getting Rid of the Myth of Monotasking (It’s Only Hurting Us)

Getting Rid of the Myth of Monotasking (It’s Only Hurting Us) | Conciencia Colectiva | Scoop.it

"Technology is what is now being blamed for multitasking overload.   In some situations, that is certainly the case.   In other situations, the issue might be too much work, an inefficient office, or just boredom with the job or school work.  We can change some of those conditions and not others—but we cannot even sort out what is causing our frustration, exhaustion, or sense of failure until we understand what multitasking is.  Once we realize that multitasking itself is the human condition—not an outcome only of too much email or social networking—then we can find practical ways to address the real problem, not the mythical one."

"Technology is what is now being blamed for multitasking overload.   In some situations, that is certainly the case.   In other situations, the issue might be too much work, an inefficient office, or just boredom with the job or school work."

 

Technology is not the sole driver of multitasking. It is a contributor and it probably appears to be accelerated in today's world. Most research indicates multitasking is not positive.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, August 17, 2013 10:29 AM

Excellent article that I have read more than once,and has certainly challenged me to think about so many themes:  Leadership, Communication, Teaching, etc.

 

Thank you Ivon for sharing with us!!!

 

I particularly agree with this statement: "We can blame technology for our inefficiency but the real issue is competing desires that yield competing desires on our attention."

 

Are we leveraging technology and running it to fit our lives....or is technology running us? 

 

What do you think?

Stephen Hawking: 'Transcendence looks at the implications of artificial intelligence - but are we taking AI seriously enough?' | Conciencia Colectiva | Scoop.it
With the Hollywood blockbuster Transcendence playing in cinemas, with Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman showcasing clashing visions for the future of humanity, it's tempting to dismiss the notion of highly intelligent machines as mere science fiction. But this would be a mistake, and potentially our worst mistake in history.
