Multitasking: Is It Really More Efficient?

Multitasking: Is It Really More Efficient?

Some of us know the chances of carrying on a phone call and getting an email out are fairly slim, let alone likely to be coherent.

Music when it hits that sweet spot makes your foot tap and your heart sing. It makes you want to jump up and dance, or sing loudly out of tune.

It can make you laugh or it can touch your soul. Music has been prevalent in all human cultures since we first started scratching flint together to make flames. But music, unlike other biological advantages is not associated with advancement of our species or of our survival. That is, it’s not like food or water or sex or shelter.
