Multitasking, in its modern context, refers to the capability of a person to perform more than one task at the same time, provided they are intended to deliver on a common result. Say, driving your car on the street involves operating the car, upholding safety norms, and ensuring that others are not affected by your driving skills!!!
However, when generally spoken or referred to, this word points to anyone’s ability to do more than 2 activities together, say, a chauffeur driving while listening to music or a student drawing doodles during the professor’s lecture in the class. More examples could be, Housewives cooking while taking on the phone, simultaneously and completing work while heating. These are just a few examples of the current usage of ‘Multitasking’, in its current form.
“So, before entering into a deeper analysis of Multitasking in terms of its actual implications, pros, and cons, associated myths, etc., let me take you to a brief tour of its actual occurrence in our daily lives”.
Just to put my stance before hitting the point, let me also make it very clear that ‘Multitasking’ and its relevance (under all circumstances) is either related to the cause or an effect of our never-ending efforts to optimize the time taken in various activities in our life.
So, ‘Multitasking’ is always about ‘Time Management’ and is the best mode of understanding the implications of all the related endeavors.
We will continue with this topic in the next post as well..so watch out for Part-2!!!
