Simple Secrets

Heavy workload and multitasking during meetings don't mix well. Prioritize tasks and give full attention for better focus.

Struggling with a heavy workload? Then meetings are the last thing you want to see on your calendar.

It was a challenge for me. No matter how hard I tried to concentrate, pending tasks were on my mind.

Trying to be efficient, I did some work during the meetings. I kept an ear on the conversation and thought I was being slick.

But it was like doing a crossword puzzle while watching a ball game. In my head, I was multitasking. But the reality?

I was missing all the action.

Instead of a mad productivity hack, I just found a new way of being mediocre at both.

Want to hear the worst part?

Because I missed out on valuable info, the meetings had to last longer. Obviously, this slowed me down even more. I had to rewind and watch the whole game again.

Now I know it's better to prioritize tasks and give my full attention to each one separately. This way, I can tackle my work with more focus.
