Why Multitasking Doesn’t Work

I found this article that talks about multitasking as a waste of time and how it doesn’t work. It explains that tasks that require brain power cannot be done simultaneously as “our short-term memories can only store between five and nine things at once.” For example, if you’re doing your homework, listening to music and reading something online, sure you’d finish your homework and had fun at the same time, but you’d forget what you read online and what music you were listening to.

Why Multitasking Doesn’t Work

However, in my opinion I don’t think of multitasking as a waste of time or a distraction, if you have everything organized and planned out on how you will finish the tasks you need to finish simultaneously, you won’t forget half of the things you do; since in my experience, i rarely forget half of the tasks I did while multitasking.
