Multi-Project vs. Multi-Task

Leo at zenhabits says Don’t multi-task — multi-project and single-task.

How many job descriptions do you read that list “ability to multi-task” as a requirement?  Sure, we all have that ability to some extent, but I’m realizing that’s not the best way to get things done.  If I’m trying to give my attention to two or more different things at once, I’m not giving either the attention that it deserves.  Of course, we all have a smorgasbord of things we’re trying to accomplish, from getting the yard done to finishing the weekly status report.  Our focus should be on one thing at a time, until we move to the next.

I’m working on putting this strategy in my life, but I can’t say that I’m successful yet.  As I’m writing this post I’m getting up to stir lunch that’s on the stove, then sitting back down to write.  So I have a ways to go.  But what a goal, huh?
