Do you enjoy doing multiple tasks at the same time?

As a student who finds difficulty in managing time, I often end up doing multiple tasks all at the same time. It makes me accomplish several tasks while consuming lesser time.. like washing the dishes while memorizing things, eating my breakfast or dinner while studying and others.. I enjoy doing this because i have extra time to do other things which i rarely do like surfing the net or watching dvd.. However, I was told that doing multiple tasks at the same time is not good since it makes me lose my concentration and makes me easily forget things.. for my own sake, i'm trying to stop this habit.. it's quite difficult since I already got used to it.. How about you? do you enjoy doing multiple tasks at the same time??

Multi - tasking is a common thing nowadays...there is nothing harm in doing it because only those above average can do successful multi-tasking. It is a gift in fact because not all can do multi-tasking. In requires coordination, concentration and skill to do the job well. If I may say, don't think multi-tasking in a negative way but instead use it for your advantage. Once you get use to it, you'll find that you can do lots of things in a short span of time.

Because of not managing time properly, I cannot avoid multi-tasking because it already became a part of my life. Truth be told, it really makes someone who does it lose his or her concentration on both what she's doing because he or she cannot concentrate well on either of the tasks she does. The result is that he or she focuses on the other, and then to another one. By doing that, he or she loses all the concentration she has on the both of the tasks to be done. And boom... often results to disasters!

That is a great quality I think. I am master in time and yes I have to do many things at once if not kills me the boredom. I found out that this is a skill that not everyone has. So keep up!
