I always do. I like to get work done, so I try to do alot of things at once. Sometimes I overwhelm myself with too many tasks. Do you do this too?

Yes, I normally multitask in order to get everything done in a day that I need to. I like to do more than one thing at a time and it helps to keep me organized. My kids are always complaining that I am trying to do too much at a time but as long as I stay focused then I am fine with it.

I always multi-task...on the computer or around the house or at work...it makes me more efficient...sometimes it can slow down progress though...when I start cleaning and end up reading magazines instead of packing them away! lol Usually though, it's a great way to work efficiently, but I think sometimes, it's best to focus on one thing at a time, only sometimes though! lol

lol I'm the quen of multi-tasking. In fact I find it difficult to only do one thing at once. Currently I'm watching a movie, mylotting, chatting on msn, and checking my bank account.

I used to, at work and at home. Now I don't. I find that being multi tasker makes me prone to help others with their responsibilities. Everyone has their own responsibility so I will finish mine and they have to finish theirs. Unless they are not around, I'm not doing their job. Now I have more time for myself and not stretching my self too thin with too many tasks all at once.

I do it everyday especially when I'm at work. I'm handling all Finance, HR and Admin in our office. Its pretty tough especially when there are 40 employees in it. ^__^ Personally I'm not very fond of multi tasking because it diminishes my productivity, especially when there are too much deadlines to meet. At home though, I dont want to multi task anymore. I just want to sleep, chat with my room mates and go to bed. =^_^=

I multi-task too... I guess this is usually considered good but can also be a bad thing as i assume i will always take less time than i actually do and leave things til last minute XD So everything is a rush job.

I do multi-task... and I think i'm pretty good at it. Doing one task at a time bores me ans so I have to do something else with it. I organize my workplace, do some paper work, snack and watch all at the same time. At times, I do better when i'm multitasking rather than focusing on a specific task alone.

Yes, I multi-task a lot. I am always trying to get everything done as quick as possible to have more time with my boys. I always try to see what I can start while I am doing something else.

Yes, I would have to say that I like multi-tasking. I like to do a lot of things in one day. I even tried doing things after another and it really stresses me out.

I do that all the time. But it makes me so tired after a short time since it multitasking seems to drain my energy so fast.
