Devora Zack wants you to stop multi-tasking right now. In fact, you weren’t even multi-tasking, you were task-switching. Moving from one project to another always requires a mental reset and even if it’s only momentary those moments add up and take time out of your day. Instead, put all your energy into one task at a time. You’ll get more work done better by doing what Devora calls Singletasking.
