The old ideas about “time management” and multi-tasking are no longer working. In fact, they seem to be making things worse. Some of the first studies are showing that multi-tasking takes longer and decreases the quality of output.
It is now widely accepted among researchers and scientists that constant multi-tasking even makes us worse at multi-tasking! The more we do it, the worse we get everything. The problem is that we have become so accustomed to instant gratification of our curiosity and our mental whims, that we undermine our own ability to focus. And it’s almost impossible to control your “time” (and there are only 24 hours in every day anyway), until you can control your attention.
Attention management training teaches the ability to control distractions, single-task for higherquality results, and engage in sustained (focused) attention when necessary, which should be a part of almost every day. And calling attention to unproductive behaviours, such as being constantly reactive rather than thoughtfully proactive, helps employees recognize when they are engaging in them
