Multitasking is like Second-Hand Smoke!

We all know multitasking isn’t good for us, but have you considered that it also hurts those around you just like second-hand smoke?

Daniel Gulati has written a great blog post called “Multitasking’s Real Victims.” He makes a good case for the fact that multitasking hurts your family, friends, and coworkers.

How can we stand up against anti-social antics? Here’s Gulati’s three tips (read his full article for expansion of each point):

  1. Call out the multitasker mid-task.
  2. Find a new time to meet.
  3. Physically disengage (do something like leaving the room).

Do you have any strategies for standing up against multitaskers?
