“When it looks like you’re multitasking–you’re looking at one TV screen and another TV screen and you’re talking on the telephone – your attention has to shift from one to the other. You’re brain literally can’t multitask. You can’t pay attention to two things simultaneously. You’re switching back and forth between the two. So you’re paying less concerted attention to either one."  http://bit.ly/not-add

Start with your own behavior. How many times have you gone to a meeting that lacked an agenda or a clear set of objects — and didn't do anything about it? How often have you received unnecessary email or reports — but didn't let the senders know that they were clogging up your inbox? How often have you sat through a presentation with too many slides, unclear points, and too much data — but didn't provide any feedback to the presenter? And how often have you been the perpetrator of these complexity-causing behaviors without anyone pushing back on you?

We all allow these things to happen. Often, we're guilty of doing them. But since most people dislike confrontation, we let things slide. It's an unspoken conspiracy: "I won't challenge you if you won't challenge me." The net result is that we unwittingly create a culture of complexity. — Harvard Business Blogs on http://bit.ly/artists-way
