Kala Carroll March 28, 2011 Essay 4- Text Analysis Turn Multi-Tasking into Single-Tasking While writing this essay, what did most of us have on hand? More than likely we had our cell phones, Facebook, television, or maybe we were trying to accomplish more than one school assignment: this is considered multitasking. As Alina Tugend describes, multitasking makes tasks, resembling these, more “fun”. Though that may be true, the result of trying to juggle so many things at once is sacrificing our concentration. Edward M. Hallowell is a psychiatrist and author of Crazy Busy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and About to Snap! He describes multitasking as switching one’s focus from one task to another in rapid succession. One may think they are simultaneously tasking, but that’s an extreme misapprehension. Hallowell says, “It’s like playing tennis with three balls.” There have been many studies proving that multitasking is bad for your health, makes accomplishing duties more difficult, and is simply a bad idea (Tugend 653-657). When trying to accomplish many things at once it’s impossible to completely succeed at the first task at hand; therefore, let’s try single-tasking.
