Multitasking is the ability to do multiple activities at the same time. You may be working on a report, checking your phone and talking with a coworker at the same time.

In your work and personal life, it’s not uncommon to have simultaneous projects. But how many times have you felt overwhelmed by this experience? Luckily, you’re not alone.

Many of us get bogged down in multitasking because we think we can do EVERYTHING at once. Of course, that’s not the case. Our minds can only focus on a few things at a time. The more tasks you do, the less attention you can pay to each one. This often leads to errors. So how can we get everything done?
