We are multi-tasking machines. Or, at least we wish we were.
Even as research studies continue to prove we aren't as great at multi-tasking as we would like to be or pretend to be, it doesn't stop many of us from multi-tasking constantly.
In this blog post about attentiveness, I argue for more focus and energy on what's happening right in front of us - with each conversation, meeting and interaction - instead of trying to do two or three other things simultaneously.
In our new virtual world, the task might seem impossible, but I believe we are up for the challenge.
