How about multitasking?
« on: July 11, 2012, 03:13:02 AM »

Many prefer monotasking over multitasking. However, if done the right way, multitasking will bring in results which will help in your career growth.

Are you sulking about the unfruitful appraisal? If so, then sulk not. Over 70% of employees have had an uneventful appraisal this year. The recuperating market does not allow the company to conduct and give regular benefits as before. So instead of moping over spilled milk lets us try some new ways to gear up and stay cheerful at work.


Why not try multitasking? It comes free of cost, makes you valuable to the company and to the potential recruiters. The benefits of multitasking are many. It helps you become attentive, creative, responsive towards work, garners your ability to execute work efficiently etc.


Follow these simple rules while multitasking to achieve results.

    One thing at a time. Make a mental note of the tasks involved in a work and accomplish them before moving onto the next one. Concentrate and finish one task at a time. Avoid juggling work. Remain focussed and determined to complete work within TAT.


    Chalk out a schedule. Plan before undertaking a project. Pick out the priority projects and work on them first. Always chalk out an agenda before embarking on any new one. Ensure you have time to relax in between them so as to not burn out.


    Do not overburden yourself with responsibilities. Only take up work if you have the time for it. Learn to say “No” to work. Nobody will think any less of you if you refuse work rather than not complete them on a pre-set time or work shoddily.


    Retrospect your goal. Analyse what you want from life at present. If your goal is moons away from your work then there is no point in multitasking work. Take out time to relax and mingle with close ones. Rejuvenate yourself before you start working again.


A recent survey shows that About 35 percent of Gen Y-ers multitask, compared with 30 percent of Gen X-ers. Multitasking is going to increase before it wanes. It seems to be a precious attribute with people lately. Many mention this skill on their resume too. So the next time you do it, mean it.
