Friday Feature: Multitasking

As I type this on Thursday evening, I'm watching the news. Tomorrow, I'll struggle to remember what the forecast was.


You bet.

I know I shouldn't multitask. I know the importance of focus. I'm currently reading a book called Focus. I teach about not just focus, but also psychological theorists who believe attention is the gateway to learning.

And yet I still multitask. Is there any hope for me and others like me?

I'm happy to say that the answer is yes. Not only can we step away from the multiple tasks, but, according to the Mayo Clinic, we can also build our focusing skills.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I still have a few college essays to focus on.
