To multitask or not to — what was I doing again?
Multitasking is not my thing. I especially can’t do any two things that involve words at the same time, like writing while listening to music with lyrics. I guess I only have one verbal track available. Of course, research suggests that none of us really multitask. We just switch quickly between higher-level activities, fooling ourselves into thinking we’re doing both or all at once. And it ends up taking more time that way.
To be fair, though, not all of my tasks are exactly higher-level. So when I do manage to walk and chew gum at the same time, it’s kind of a win.
