When you’re extremely busy, there’s the temptation to multitask.
Have you ever had that moment when two people are texting you, one is sending you WhatsApp message, and the other is trying to get you on the phone? When it happens, the initial impulse is to jump from one to the other and answer everyone as quickly as possible.
But try to fight that instinct and instead focus on each conversation to give it the attention it deserves. For example, if on a call, try to be 100% present. That means no texting or looking at email.
When you multitask, you end up with two (or more!) suboptimal results. Give all your attention to a single interaction at a time, and the outcome will be better.
