The Argument Against (and a Case for) Multi-Tasking

There’s no question that technology has changed our working lives completely. Our smart phones allow us to be connected at all times, video conferencing allows us to work remotely and still feel a part of the team, and shared calendars allow for others to book our meetings and know when we’re available.

All month, we’ve been addressing the importance of networking and making new connections.

Leave the Dishes

We have more responsibilities than ever before; our day jobs, passion projects, family, friends, and household obligations pull us in several different directions. We try so hard to succeed at everything, and yet, there are days we feel like we can’t seem to accomplish anything.
