Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: In our society, where everyone is struggling with too much to do and too little time, we end up multitasking non-stop. Even though you may feel that you are good at it, studies are demonstrating that you are more productive when you can focus on one thing at a time. However the bigger issue is that researchers have discovered that constant multitasking is actually causing short-term memory damage. We have to find ways to limit our need to work in this mode. Becoming more organized can help us focus and prioritize, which is one of the ways we can accomplish this.
