Stop Trying to Multi-Task
“One of the most effective ways to minimize productivity loss while working from home (or anywhere) is to stop trying to multi-task. The human brain does not multi-task. So while you are listening to a conference call, responding to an email, and participating in chat, you are not being effective. Do one thing at a time. Do it well. Then move onto the next item. You will be less stressed. Accomplish more. And, your work will be higher-quality.”
