Achieve More By Not Being Dumb

Achieve More By Not Being Dumb

If you pull an all-nighter, do you get more done?

Most would agree that the lack of sleep will have a real impact on your working IQ, diminishing your output and quality of life.

What about multitasking – do you get more done then?

Most would concur that multitasking helps us achieve more, hopping between essential activities like some kind of productivity ninja.

Except both of these things reduce working IQ by the same amount – as much as 40%.

If we want to achieve more, produce better work, and serve people more fully, we need to not be dumb:

Resist multitasking precisely as much as you resist all-nighters.
