Contrary to what some people may think, multitasking does not always improve efficiency. You’ll be more efficient when you can focus on a single task for a period of time.
I spent several minutes trying to come up with an attractive opening paragraph for this article, instead I ended up answering emails, fixing the Rules & Alerts in my Outlook, registering for an affiliate program, checking my sites stats and viewing my Text Link Ads commission.
And as if that’s not enough, the Yahoo Messenger dialog pop up as a friend initiated a chat – ok if you are reading this I am not blaming you my friend – but I still haven’t came up with anything !
The only consolation from all this is that now I have a story to tell in the opening paragraph!
