Multitasking or Chunking

Multitasking or Chunking

Lisa over Management Craft has written an experience from her on comparing multi-tasking vs focusing. Should you be doing tasks or projects concurrently, or you should leave a bigger chunk of time for you to do one project only (focusing). She found out focusing (she calls it chunking) is more effective:

… I am straddling several large projects right now. All of them important and all of them clamoring for my attention. I decided to do a test and take longer chucks of time to focus on each instead of doing the concurrent multi-tasking thing. Over the last 4 days, I assigned entire days to focus on a project. Each day a different focus. When my mind started to wander, I shut my thoughts down and filed them away until it was their time. I got so much done!!!!!…

What are your experience on multi-tasking, or setting larger block of time to complete your project? Which one do you prefer?

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
