"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?
