1) Multitasking is counterproductive and thrashing: CNN.com Study: Multitasking is counterproductive (http://www.cnn.com/2001/CAREER/trends/08/05/multitasking.study/index. html)

Finally, a study to back up what I always told my managers at CEISS --
I cannot handle working on 6 different projects at one time and do work that meets my quality expectations under strict deadlines.

I work best when I'm working on 1 or 2 tasks/projects.

Actually, Hal Jorch (http://www.google.com/search? hl=en&safe=off&q=hal+), the first manager I had at CEISS, really understood this. (He didn't stay at CEISS very long -- hint hint).

When I told him I was being asked to do too many things at once he taught me about thrashing (http://www.google.com/search? q=cache:jWZKEJgzuzk:www.whatis.com/definition/0,289893,sid9_gci214055, 00.html+), which is what happens when a multitasking operating system starts spending more time switching between tasks than performing the tasks themselves. He said it applied to people every bit as much as computers.
