Multitasking: A lesson I guess learnt in time!

I have always chewed more than what I can bite… And this has perhaps hurt me more than anything else in life. And in the last few months I am working hard to get back the FOCUS.

So what exactly is wrong with Multitasking? It is good… yes it is, but even your PC hangs while doing it. You are just a human! One needs to focus and concentrate on one thing at a time. Don’t mistake this as a NO to do many things, but One after the other. Thats the approach. Think, Plan but don’t disturb yourself with too many things at once!
