Training Yourself to Monotask, by Craig Hase
Did you know multitasking is the devil? It's true. And there's research to prove it.
A 2009 study out of Stanford University found that multitaskers— those who work with several streams of information at once—fall short at attention tasks, memory tasks, and completing tasks.
Not only that, according to that same research, people who think they're great multitaskers actually score worse on multitasking trials than the rest of us.
Since then, other studies have found that multitasking lowers your IQ, short-circuits your brain’s efficiency, and makes it super tough to learn new things. (There is some bright side: some recent research suggests that it can sometimes boost creativity.)
In other words, the more people multitask, the worse they are at . . . well, almost everything. So multitasking is bad. But why?
There’s a part of your brain at the front of your skull called the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex does a lot of stuff, but one of its primary responsibilities is helping you direct attention.
Now, the prefrontal cortex has a left side and a right side. And both those sides talk to each other, and talk to the rest of your brain.
When you concentrate on a single task, the paired sides of your prefrontal cortex can work together like two trained dancers in a beautiful waltz.
But when you do different things—like texting and driving, or emailing while writing a report—the left and right sides of your prefrontal cortex have to split: the left side works on one thing, the right side works on another.
Neither task gets the attention it needs. And we end up with car accidents and bad reports.
Worse still, though, is that the more we multitask, the more we train the brain to be a scattered mess….

Ratings and Reviews
A lifelong skeptic....blown away by its simplicity
The short review of this... and why this is effective is that they were able to explain to me in the process of 5-10 min how silent meditation works, and why it’s ok to not be good at it and how to get something out of not being good at it. Really has made a huge difference to me, and I can’t say enough good things about embracing meditation, even if you’re not good or comfortable with it. Follow the teachings, and you’ll learn something.
I have been waiting for the right moment to start the series - it’s taken weeks. I did first lesson. Nice. Then ... with frustration discovered there is nothing free about the app. False marketing! You get 7 free days if you sign up for a $120/year. Soooo disappointed.
