    Multitasking a boon or a bane?

    Multi tasking is simply accomplishing many tasks at once.People keep switching tasks focusing on multiple things simultaneously.Many refer multitasking as a way to increase productivity as well as to improve our brain health, while some are against that point!


    What do you guys think? Is it an efficient way to complete tasks or not, discuss your views.
    Do what is RIGHT, NOT what is EASY!

    I would say there are pros and cons in multi tasking. It is an efficient way, when you do multitasking you feel like you are handling everything superbly. But several time you may loose focus on important things.
    Let's be the change

    You are right we cannot actually focus on a particular task. But people say that multitasking helps them in finishing tasks faster, is it so?

    Yes, it is surely increasing the productivity. When someone is working on multiple tasks they always tend to concentrate on each and every task they have to finish. But if someone is just having one work to finish they are not concentrating on the work. In my life, I have faced that. When I have fewer works I am not doing any. But When I have multiple tasks I am concentrating on all. Because I know that I have a less time to do all and I have a lot to do.
    Try to be Dynamic and Independent

    Don't you feel like the multitasking reduces the quality of the output,?.The quantity may increase but not the quality I guess

    Multitasking is a good thing,It will make you to manage your time,increase your thinking process also keep you active and productive,
    But it's not always work some times you lost your focus from the important thing,So we have to priorities the thing while doing multi tasking.

    It's good practice to train your mind to multitasking, but some kind of activities need to be focus only one thing. While you eating you can enjoy a movie but you can't enjoy your food sometimes. So based on priorities it may differ. In multitasking which task we focus on will give us good results.
