I hate multitasking. It is an idiotic exercise. I have subjected healthy portions of my working hours to the vigorous of multitasking and I realised that it is nothing more but a fancy name invented to cover a pathetic and useless act. Multitasking effectively reduces a refined human being to a caged monkey. There is nothing glorious or poetic about it.
I feel, while doing a particular task, if you are not giving 100% to it, then you are cheating the task at hand and also yourself. You are actually robbing yourself of a sense of satisfaction that follows when you devote 100% of your resources towards the task at hand. Many at times, I have seen people multitasking, to achieve many different results. The results vary from impressing the elements in your immediate surroundings to saving time or even evolving yourself to maximizing your output. Trust me, you do not maximize your output but only reduce it. During the course of multitasking, a person, inadvertently, looses on finer nuances of his or her work. It may not happen immediately but be rest assured, it will happen eventually. The discipline in a persons approach towards his work gets corrupted and before one can realize anything, it is already too late to make amends.
Why rob yourself of a genuine pleasure that arises after completion of a job when you devote yourself 100% to it? Multitasking only exposes you to hazards, that slowly creep into your life system. A person might unknowingly carry this hazards to even his home. Now, how ill your loved ones would feel, if you do not shower them with the attention they deserve. Will you not be cheating them of true love that they are supposed to receive from you. Imagine yourself playing around with your smartphones or laptops when they are trying to communicate to you. If possible, then please note your reaction in such cases and also of the ones who are trying to communicate to you. Such actions are very repulsive and go against the very structure of manners and etiquette.
Think on the hazards of multitasking instead of its positives, which I sincerely believe are illusionary. Focus on the task at hand. Devote your complete attention towards it. Let this habit also flow into your personal lives. Devote your 100% attention while interacting within your social circle. Try to be a genuine human being instead of trying to evolve into a an animal that highlights a circus show.
