Tasking in Scotland

Last night I spoke briefly to Fred McCauley on 'McCauley & Co', BBC radio Scotland, for the UK release of Distraction.

My fellow guest was Clare Evans, author of Time Management for Dummies. Following on from my BBC article and interview, we were talking about multi-tasking, and simple tips for avoiding distraction.

Clare's were organisational, mine more existential: we only have so much time and energy in life - is Facebook, or repetitive email checking, the most valuable use of each?

And Fred made a nice point: we ought to simply 'task', rather than pretending to multi-task.

You can listen to the interview here. It's available for a week.
