Tips to effective multitasking
  • Accept that you can do only one task at a time
    effectively. I feel that processing in brain is
    sequential.
  • Prioritize your tasks. I would say this is key to
    your success.
  • Plan every task you take up and break down into
    smaller milestones which are logical ends to the
    quantum of effort you put into it.

31
  • Estimate a rough schedule to finish these
    milestones. Chart out the inputs, resources
    needed and the needed output for these
    milestones.
  • When you finish a milestone, bring it to a
    logical end. Make sure that everything is in
    place so that you can come back after some time
    and continue with this task.

32
  • At times, it helps if you slow down your pace of
    working. If you rush up for everything, soon you
    will get exhausted. Deliberately slow down and
    you will feel good. Above everything, life is
    about enjoying every moment.
