In “Multitasking Can Make You Lose...Um...Focus,” Alina Tugend examines the negative aspects and many disadvantages that occur through multitasking. Tugend begins by stating that multitasking is the norm for today’s fast paced society; however, in reality it is pulling focus from the task at hand.

With Tugends article in mind I agree that multitasking puts a lot of stress and pressure on the individual, creates a loss in time, and is awful for innovation.
Time management techniques are essential to living your life more efficiently. Many people spend their days in a frenzy of activity but achieve very little because they are not concentrating on the right things. By using time management skills, you can learn to determine which of the things you do are important, which can be dropped, use your time in the most effective way possible, break down the roadblocks that waste it, and increase the effectiveness.

In addition, this division of concentration is causing many people to not pay attention. For most, multitasking is a disadvantageous skill that should not be encouraged as a valid
Managing our time is a key part of being on task in school and helps us be successful. I was very bad at managing my time in high school. I did not think it was necessary to plan out my day. I did everything at the time I felt like it. I always ended up staying up late at night because I didn't want to do my homework earlier in the day.

Multitasking is what has made today today. As time has moved on, things become faster and faster, the way we travel, production has increased, and how fast we have to work.

Looking back, I can’t help but ask myself if trying to accomplish all these things at once is efficient or if I would have been more productive to focus on one thing at a time. I have noticed that when I take on too many things at one time I become very stressed. In an online article composed by Forbes magazine it stated that, According, to a study conducted at the University of London, researcher’s “found that participants who multitasked during cognitive tasks experienced IQ score declines that were similar to what they’d expect if they had smoked marijuana or stayed up all night.” This study confirms that multitasking is slowing us down and is not beneficial.
