Harvard Business School Blogger says slow works!
June 7, 2010
CTV news wrote a piece about Harvard Business School blogger Peter Bregman who embarked on a single-tasking experiment after a series of multitasking blunders. He tried to craft an email while on a conference call with a board member, who asked him a question. When the board member received no response, the situation got awkward.
Peter swore off multitasking for a week.
Here’s what he found.
- Enhanced productivity.
- More patience for the ‘useful things’ in life.
- Reduced stress levels.
- More protective of the time he spends.
- He looked into his personal bank account of time and smiled.
- No downside.
- More energy.
- More focus.
- He literally saw the leaves on the trees and felt a rush of gratitude.
Time to celebrate!
