My Brain is Not an App

I don’t know about you, but my brain is not designed to function like an iPad or iPhone, with applications running in the background.

I recently posted on how multitasking is a big old lie.

In both man and machine, multitasking depletes available resources, including memory and power, and limits the functioning of foreground applications. Try running multiple applications on an iPhone simultaneously and watch how long the battery lasts.

So what to do?

We need to make smarter choices. We need to conserve our energy and allocate our time and resources to the people and tasks that matter. Unlike iDevices, we really can’t do it all, at the same time.
