  • lots of questions are asked about

  • multitasking for example does

  • multitasking kill my productivity? is

  • multitasking good for me? am i a good

  • multitasker or should I just quit doing

  • it? and of course the one that's probably

  • asked most often does it actually work?

  • I see multitasking articles posted every

  • single day claiming to be able to teach

  • you how to be a better multitasker they

  • often talk about multitasking benefits

  • that are supposed to increase your

  • productivity while ignoring every

  • multitasking study that claims otherwise

  • and that's why I'm here today I'm going

  • to answer some of the most commonly

  • asked questions about multitasking as

  • well as give you some tips on how to

  • stop doing it

  • so first here are the answers to the

  • most commonly asked questions about

  • multitasking question one does multitasking

  • actually work

  • not exactly studies have shown that you

  • can't truly multitask but your brain is

  • capable of switching from one task to

  • another at an extremely fast rate a good

  • example would be when you're walking and

  • talking with somebody

  • your brain is actually switching between

  • those two tasks but it does it so

  • quickly that we don't actually notice it

  • however this doesn't work for more

  • complex tasks like trying to figure out

  • a complex math problem while

  • simultaneously organizing a group of

  • unrelated people for an unrelated

  • project question two does multitasking

  • kill my productivity absolutely and

  • unequivocally yes there are tons of

  • studies from Stanford University, MIT, and

  • many other places besides to back this

  • up the amount it kills your productivity

  • does vary from study to study but it

  • does slow you down to some degree

  • regardless however it may actually be a

  • little bit worse than most of us think

  • which leads us to the next question is

  • multitasking good for me

  • no no it is not in fact a study from the

  • university of london actually found that

  • multitasking can lower your IQ by as

  • many as 15 points and since the average

  • IQ scores tend to range between 90 and

  • 110 points that 15-point hit is a pretty

  • big deal in my book and finally should i

  • quit multitasking

  • ideally yes because in addition to the

  • lower IQ i just mentioned researchers

  • from the United Kingdom have found that

  • multitasking increasing your body's

  • production of the stress hormone

  • cortisol and can lead to increased heart

  • rate and blood pressure which could

  • cause you some serious health problems

  • down the road

  • however while all this information is

  • great to know it doesn't actually help

  • us fix the problem

  • how can we stop or at least limit our

  • time spent multitasking in a world that

  • seems to demand it from us every day

  • I've tried many things but there were

  • three tricks that really stood out above

  • the rest

  • the first is the most obvious eliminate

  • the potential for distraction as much as

  • you possibly can turn off your

  • cellphone, close your office door if

  • you have one, and for the love of God

  • clean up your office space when i first

  • tried this in college I was actually

  • amazed at how big a difference cleaning

  • up my desk made i have a desk at work

  • that i shared with a few co-workers and

  • there was always some new piece of

  • sports memorabilia or stat sheet lying

  • around

  • I'd still do work there but my

  • productivity paled in comparison to what

  • I got done when I went to the library

  • which had a much cleaner workspace the

  • second trick is one that I've covered

  • before and it's called time blocking. time

  • blocking is when you set certain times

  • to complete certain tasks during the day

  • but for this to work best you need to

  • make sure you have your time block set

  • before the day begins

  • however this technique in my experience

  • is simple to understand but not always

  • simple to implement when i first tried

  • it I struggled to stick to my blocks and

  • the thing that helped me most was to

  • adopt the mindset that until I finished

  • whatever task i was supposed to be doing

  • at the time everything else should be

  • seen as a distraction and avoided like

  • the plague

  • when I have this mindset I find myself

  • not only sticking to my box more

  • consistently but actually finishing the

  • task well before the block was over the

  • third trick is to practice mindfulness

  • meditation is a great way to start doing

  • this and science is finding numerous

  • benefits to meditating regularly even if

  • it is just for 10 to 20 minutes a day

  • some of the benefits are increased gray

  • matter in your brain which can improve

  • your memory as well as yourself control

  • it can also decrease stress and even

  • improve your ability to focus. I'll leave

  • a link in the description below that

  • lists more of the benefits of meditation

  • because honestly there's just far too

  • many to list in this video.

  • So what questions do you have about

  • multitasking have you ever tried any of

  • the tips that I mentioned or are there

  • some others that you tried that work for

  • you let me know about them in the

  • comments section below and if you

  • enjoyed this video be sure to like share

  • and subscribe for more videos like this

  • I upload every single friday so until
