What's the best tool for the chronic multi-tasker?

This post brought to you by LG DoublePlay™. All opinions are 100% mine.


I'll admit it, I am a chronic multi-tasker. I am constantly reading my email, checking texts, talking to a vendor or client, and sometimes even taking a photo or two. I only have so many hours in the day, and I tend to think I can get everything done -- so I multitask some things in order to make up lost ground. 


I came across the LG DoublePlay, which has the features and functionality that makes it a weapon of choice for the Intellectual Capitalist looking for a leg up, multi-tasking-wise. Think about how many hour you spend Social Networking on your phone each month… how would a phone (running Android and with a fully QUERTY keyboard, with an innovative split style) increase my ability to interact? How many times have you found yourself taking a photo, uploading to FB or Twitter, and reading a text? Comments welcome on the vicissitudes of mutli-tasking, and how something like the LG DoublePlay might change your view of social networking and mobile communications.


About the device: the LG DoublePlay features Android (and the Android Market for apps, of course), interesting multiple messaging options such as Cloud Text and Group Text, which enables sending/receiving messages from multiple platforms (your PC or a tablet, for example). See more here at the only source for this device, T-Mobile.


Ok, have I waxed philosophically enough about the virtues of multi-tasking? Check out the LG DoublePlay™ at a T-Mobile store, if you think it would change the way you text or post to your FaceBook or Twitter accounts. Let me know (in the comments) how many hours you spend texting, or otherwise using your phone to connect to your ever-widening circle of fellow Intellectual Capitalists…

  1. "Multitasking, when it comes to paying attention, is a myth." Dr John Medina

    I don't even try to 'multitask' these days after reading his (very well written and hugely entertaining) book Brain Rules, based on research on how the brain actually functions.

    "If workplaces had nap rooms, multitasking was frowned upon, and meetings were held during walks, we'd be vastly more productive. "

    "Rule #4 (for Thinking Smart) - MultiTask at your peril (and others')"
    People who are interrupted - which is what 'multitasking' actually is, take 50% longer to complete a task and make 50% more errors.

    Well worth checking out his book, or his wonderful presentations.

  2. @JaneB, funny you mentioned the concept of workplace napping, I don't know if you remember this New York Times piece, that talks about the virtues of the nap (think of Einstein, Da Vinci, etc.)
