Singletasking Is the New Multitasking? [Singletasking]

20 Giu/09

While multitasking is invariably useful, excessive multitasking can make it difficult to get things done (as we’ve previously noted). Productivity weblog WebWorkerDaily suggests now may be the time to adopt a singletask approach.

As the name implies, singletasking is the process of sequentially tackling one task at a time, and only moving on to the next once the first is complete. Despite the simplicity implied by singletasking, the process may require more self-discipline than multitasking warrants.

For one, it means ignoring any urge to procrastinate, and making sure that you prioritize very carefully in advance, lest you realize too late that what you thought was most urgent actually could’ve taken a back seat to something else.

The full post offers specific tips for how-to singletask including replacing multiple task applications like the iPhone-Backgrounder with more single-focused ones and—even more daunting—ditching multiple tabs and only using one screen.

Though we can’t imaging adopting such a course across the board—especially where our beloved Ctrl+Tab is
concerned—singletasking can be an effective focus tool for tackling an important project, especially if it helps us prevent the multitasking mania that email, IM, and other potential web distractions can create.
