Why is it so difficult to multitask in real life?

We tend to ‘ponder’ when we are alone. When we are in company, we revel. We live in the moment, for the moment and barely keep track of our thoughts. We are just human beings incapable of multitasking. Oh! we do multitask, but our results vary. We don’t always succeed when we do two or more things simultaneously. If you do, you are a superhuman. Embrace yourself. Give yourself a hug. Just a hug. Stop touching yourself!

Once a great man advised me not to put my legs in two boats and oar. Frankly, I don’t remember him. But I do remember his quotes, precisely because I ended up falling in the water so many times after that, that I have lost track now. Life taught me the lesson which I dreaded. I never followed his advice in reality, and whenever I overlooked, I ended up all wet. I became a Jack of all. Whoa! that sounded weird.

Multitasking doesn’t pay you well. The concept hardly fails in computing. But in real life, our mind is good at focusing one thing at a time. I just made this up while penning this down:

Whilst I stared at you to paint,

My brush worn off.

Whilst I took out another,

You were gone!

We can’t really concentrate on two jobs simultaneously, can we? No, not defined in our dictionary. When I say that, I hope you are not picturing something as petty as whistling and writing at the same time. The truth is, if you give your 100% to a job, nothing can stop it from falling into your favor-bag. Think about all those debacles you encountered in your sojourn! Now ask yourself – did you really give your 100% in all of them? No? Told ya. If yes, then you surely are a pretty fu*d up creature.

Some are built for it (weirdos), some are really up for it (brave? my ass!), some take it one at a time, like a normal person, piling up their work and getting smothered eventually, while some don’t do anything at all. Yeah I am talking to you, you reader!
