I sometimes pride myself as being an excellent multi-tasker; I always have a million things going on a million to-do lists and at the end of the day I get stuff done. But then other times I worry I might be the world’s worst multi-tasker: when I’m doing something, I can only be doing that with absolutely no other distractions; I can’t listen to music when I do homework, I almost always have Facebook chat turned off, and I feel overwhelmed if I get too many text messages while I’m doing something else. So am I actually an extremely inefficient worker? Which is better: doing one thing with 100% focus or ten with 10% focus?
