A look at the typical day-to-day events of community members across the United States clearly shows how we are inundated with numerous, ongoing and consistent distraction — text messages, phone calls, family and work demands, to name a few.
Keeping up has ushered in an era of exhausted, yet seemingly “accomplished” aspiring multitaskers. It seems that multitasking is the key to success, but at what costs?
