What multitasking does to our brains | buffer | Into the Driver's Seat |

"We all know this and have heard it hundreds of times. To work efficiently we have to single task. No multitasking.

"And yet, we let it slip. We end up eating lunch in front of the TV with our laptop open. We browse Twitter and Facebook, whilst sending emails, and chatting in multiple Gchat windows too. When really we should be focusing on just that one assignment, blog post, proposal or piece of code.

"So one thing is for sure, we are all aware multitasking different things at the same time makes us less efficient. Why the heck is it so hard to focus on just one thing then?

"Recently I started to develop a new work routine online, that specifically focuses on singletasking only. The results I got were amazing and I want to share more on this further down.

"To understand what actually goes on in our brains and see if it all makes sense, I went ahead and found some stunning research and answers to these questions:"
