Multitaskers and the 31-hour Workday

"Spend a half-hour listening to podcasts while answering e-mail, and you've crammed 60 minutes of work into 30."

We tell our clients that podcasts are very effective for multitaskers, more effective even than video. Why? Because you can listen to a podcast while doing other things. Video requires your full attention.

The Orlando Sentinel has declared that multitaskers have created the 31-hour day. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. Judge for yourself.
