Multi-tasking is a productivity killer. The brief mental blocks when you switch tasks can cost as much as 40% of your time. But, there is a way to do it right!
The best type brings joy into your every day by pairing your must-dos with things that energize you:
Make it a friend-date. Invite your friend to that exercise class, kid class or shopping trip.
Listen while you work. Catch up on your favorite podcasts or books by listening during your commute, workouts or housework.
Clean + meet. Have an all hands or big, multi-location meeting? Schedule your WFH days then, so you can wash dishes during. I find that I actually pay more attention to the meeting because I don't get tempted by email!
How can you insert more of the things you love into your day-to-day?
BTW, my dreams are slowly coming true. Did you guys see the laundry folding robot launched at CES?
