Multitasking

The goal of organization is to be happily efficient. And when working to become efficient it is hard not to address the issue of multitasking. I have collected a handful of articles on multitasking and offer links to them here. In my personal experience I have found that multitasking in many situations hurts the quality of work and can be counter productive when needing to shift between complicated tasks. But I realize that there are tasks and situations where multitasking can be useful. So to be efficient we need to know when to employ multitasking and when not too. One item all of these articles mention is that talking on the cell phone while driving is a multitasking don't with high risk compared to the reward.
