Sunday Saying

"To do two things at once is to do neither."
- Publilius Syrus

Dawn at Because I Said So recently posted a few posts on multi-tasking. She made a comment about how women multi-task better than men but also posted that because men have a "one-track mind" they are better able to focus on one task, accomplishing it faster and better, while a woman can do 3-4 things at a time, but will usually lack in quality. I completely agree. When my Hubby sets his mind to a task he doesn't get sidetracked, and works on it until it's done, and he does a good job. I tend to try to do 2-3 things at once, and usually end up with 2-3 half-done projects and a headache. Of course there are exceptions, men who can multi-task and women who prefer to work on a single task, but I think in general this concept is true. What do you think?

I think Kev might have a woman's brain then...LOL He cleans 1 thing in 4-5 rooms instead of cleaning 1 WHOLE room on a regular basis. LOL I'm always telling him I'd rather have 1 thing completely done then 4-5 things half done. LOL

I'm more of a one thing at a time kind of person, I don't multitask well at all.

I think it's very true. But, multitasking comes in very handy when you're cooking dinner, keeping an eye on the kids while washing a load of laundry. Then after dinner, cleaning up while putting the kids in the bath and folding the laundry! :)

I agree Tisha :D I multi-task almost all day. It may not all be done well but at least I'm getting something done!
