If you were here with me during Lent this past Spring, you might remember that instead of giving up chocolate or meat for the fasting season, I gave up multitasking. It turned out to be a difficult but rewarding choice.

I write about what I learned today over at The High Calling. Here’s a bit of what you’ll find when you visit . . .

I spend most of my days multitasking—simultaneously listening to the radio, checking email, answering phone calls and drop-by questions from coworkers, while also moving in and out of various software programs running queries, researching discrepancies, and tabulating results. It all appears very busy and productive, but at the end of the day, I often am not even really sure what I accomplished.

If my life is any indication, multitasking doesn’t seem to work.
