Are you a good multitasker? How many things do you think you can do successfully at the sometime? What happened when we try to multitask? Our brain simply can’t do it. Research shows that we are not the multitaskers we think we are. When you try to multitask, you simply become less efficient and more distracted. You error rates goes up 50% and it takes you twice long to do the same task Dr. Earl Miller, an expert on divided attention and a neuroscientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, states that our brains are “not wired to multitask well… when people think they’re multitasking, they’re actually just switching from one task to another very rapidly. And every time they do, there’s a cognitive cost. Earl Miller’s research team at MIT has concluded that: Multitasking floods the brain with cortisol, a stress hormone, it uses up glucose (brain fuel) faster, exhausting and confusing our minds, it leads to scrambled thoughts and inefficiency, it makes it difficult to filter out irrelevant information and as you jump from task to task your IQ actually is reduced by 10 points, known as the “switch cost”. Learn to stay focused and avoid Multitasking all together. The good news is you can learn to focus on every task using Brain Sync’s tool. Brainwave technology by Kelly Howell has been very effective tools for me and I hope it will work for you as well. Do your reasech, and be the judge of that. Just 30 minutes a day will bring outstanding results. Disclosure: Please note I am an affiliate of Brain Sync & I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase.
