Are you a master of multitasking? You may want to think again. Check out the (surprising!) facts in this infographic we found about multitasking!
The reality is, we live in a world that never stops, and sometimes multitasking is something we just simply cannot avoid. If you are someone who can’t avoid multitasking, then organizing your life on your tech devices may really help. Luckily, there are tons of ways to better organize information, and sync it across devices:
- Use an app, like Evernote, that allows users to maintain notes (photo notes, voice, text, and more!), calendars, recordings, and other important information across their devices. Plus, it’s free!
- Box.com, a new tool launched by UIS this summer, allows users to download and store large files in a cloud, sync them across devices, and then share them with others. This is a great tool that reduces a lot of hassle and eases communication!
- One more piece of advice that may seem so simple is to organize your apps! One of the largest distractions is what we see, so if apps are organized into categories, then you may not be tempted to play the newest version of Angry Birds when you should be taking notes during lecture.
And finally, if multitasking is something you must do, be sure to be smart about when and where you do it! The stats on multitasking and driving, or multitasking and studying show that it really impairs our cognitive ability, so be smart about when and how you multitask!
