The Multi-Tasking Myth!

I’ve always prided myself on my multi-tasking.

I loved the idea that I was getting more done in less time (who doesn’t want to gain more time, right??!)

Recently I participated in a workshop led by a guy called Alex Mandossian. He’s a productivity coach, among other things (and extremely successful!)

He’s what I learned in that workshop (including a bit of a fun activity for you to try out!) and what it means for your teen 🙂

And you! (Don’t we all want to get more done more easily?!)

I’m going for a good walk (faaaarrrrr too much sitting at a desk in a marking hall), then a good, strong cuppa and a biscuit.

Ok, probably (definitely) more than one biscuit 😉
