Multitasking… Is It for Real? – Mishpacha Magazine



Multitasking – performing several tasks at one time.

Multitasking – Divulging into more than 1 thing, doesn’t even let you complete one thing.

This is a topic of opposition, people have different perspectives on multitasking. You may be one who’s in for it or you may be the one who’s against it.

No matter what preference you hold for multitasking, my job here is to provide you with a short brief on multitasking, to help you decide what’s best for you.





Let’s talk about those who do multitasking and why they do it? Does it really benefit them? We will check out that now.

So, when it comes to multitasking some people love it, mostly because these are the ones who are productive in their routines, they prioritize their tasks well, they usually have it all planned out before time and hence achieve their goals too.

These people group their tasks into categories and finish them with the appropriate amount of time which they assigned to it beforehand, in short, they are good at time management as well.

Such people have literally trained their minds to focus on more than one task at a time, and personally, I think that is fantastic, I mean what else do you want in this busy day to day life, Isn’t it?

Further these multitaskers or should I say all-rounders’ love doing what they do, they love working at more than one task at a time, they don’t procrastinate or take tasks as a burden, rather they take it as a challenge and undoubtedly overcome it too.

Basically, they save their time, instead of taking several breaks or delaying their works, they put their efforts at once, and then satisfy themselves with a good break later.




However, when it comes to non-multitaskers, such are people who aren’t able to cope up with more than one thing at a time, they aren’t good at handling several works.

Handling more than one task at one time starts to boost up anxiety levels, doing more tasks feels like a burden, and they get overwhelmed and feel like they have a lot on their table.

I completely understand! You’ve no pressure, just get one thing and stick to it, get that done then move to the next once, no rush! Chill!

After all, as they say, you don’t need to be good at all, just stick to one thing and become a master at it.

Although, if you are tied up with work just give multitasking a try, who knows you just need a little push and things work out for you in a better way?




Concluding it, I leave the decision on you, however, if you aren’t a multitasker, do try it, you will learn something surely out of it, either you will become one or you will understand your capabilities better.

At the end of the day, the thing is to get the work done. No matter you are doing it with other tasks on hand or one at a time.
