Multitasking means constantly switching between tasks, and sometimes that can destroy your productivity. Countless studies have been conducted to determine multitasking’s impact on the brain and productivity. A 2009 Stanford University study from Clifford Nass found that heavy multitaskers were less mentally organized, struggled at switching from one task to another, and had a hard time differentiating relevant from irrelevant details.
“The benefit or negative impact that multitasking has on productivity is subjective and dependent on the task at hand,” said Rachel Gauthier, practice leader of healthcare software and services for The Tolan Group. “I am an amazing multitasker on the weekends when I am juggling laundry, cleaning floors and getting my house back in order.”
