Last week at Get Ready to Live, a small unconference that happened alongside SXSW in Austin, Scott Stratten shared some great nuggets on emotional currency and how to deal with all the demands on your personal bandwidth – from approaching projects to handling haters. One of his more popular “speak-by-tweet” nuggets was that “Multitasking isn’t a talent, it’s a detriment,” as captured by Jay Baer.
Scott’s challenge? To work one screen open at a time, wholly focused on just the task at hand.
A noble goal, to be sure. But for today’s professional, do we even know how to work without multitasking?
