Agile (not) multitasking

So I did the talk. It was scary. I was stressed all the time, until I finished. I actually enjoyed questions session. They were very good. Unfortunately, sometimes there is no simple answers.

One of the participants created a great blog post summarising the talk: http://blog.agile78.co.uk/?p=132

I lost a lot of good thoughts I could deliver due to stress. First time is the worst one. Should be down hill from now on 🙂

Not too long ago there was an article on a subject of women multitasking better than man. I was looking for some research in the scientists community, but this is the only thing I found.

Women do multitask better than man. So guys, when you are watching a TV and talking to your Wife/Girlfriend, and she complains about your ignorance, she’s got a point. It doesn’t work the other way around thought 😀

As my friend Christian used to say “Less haste, more speed” and Lord Chesterfield “There is time enough for everything in the course of the day, if you do but one thing at once, but there is not time enough in the year, if you will do two things at a time.”

Don’t multitask, stay focus !
