problem feelings scattered. There are times when things just feel scattered. Even looking at a program designed to help reduce such a state feels overwhelming. Or you may find yourself using the program as a crutch, bouncing from one task to the next. Without real direction. Perhaps too many tasks have built up in the inbox, and even it seems too much. In the last several years, the ability to multi task has been placed on resumes as a badge of honor and even stated as a requirement by employers. However, it has become increasingly apparent that multitasking is not quite what it was once thought to be in order to multi task, Time and attention are, in fact neglected as the delicate resources they are. Thankfully, the concept of multitasking as a myth has been gaining momentum. For example, the myth of multitasking addresses some of these issues and bring several suggested solutions. The author, Crenshaw notes that one does not really do several things at one time. Rather, each task is given its own attention and that this attention is shifted frequently. Each shift requires a retooling of sorts. It is this retooling that is often ignored rather than considering doing several things as multi tasking. It is instead called switch tasking. I would suggest that on additional consideration, he added. As one repeatedly changes focus, the capacity for attention is actually damaged and results in feelings scattered. One invites a scattered state of mind that reacts to the environment without active thought or consideration for the overall scheme of work and play. One comes to rely on the environment for stimulation and reacts to it in a way that no longer respects the boundaries of a task.
