Harvard Business Review recently published a great article “How (and Why) to Stop Multitasking”.  The author maintains that multi-tasking is not only stressful, it is inefficient and just plain stupid.  Something to think about next time you have 4 screens open on your work computer and are on the phone as well.

Interesting paragraph from the article…

“A study showed that people distracted by incoming email and phone calls saw a 10-point fall in their IQs. What’s the impact of a 10-point drop? The same as losing a night of sleep. More than twice the effect of smoking marijuana.”
