Productivity Hack: Stop Multitasking
In today’s world, we have stimuli coming at us from all angles. We’re working on a project or talking to a client and we get an email, and interoffice IM, a text, a cellphone call or just an old-fashioned desk visitor and we lose focus. The answer is simple right? The key to more productivity is simply to multitask.
