I watched this TED talk last week and thought I would share it with you as I found it fascinating and relevant to our world of creatives.
Views switch between whether we should work on one project at once or multi-task. You will find various TED talks on the matter, all with differing views. This one is on multitasking and why it is good for creativity, not good for productivity, but creativity. I know I had a good month in November when I was juggling a couple of projects at once, when I was doing NaNoWriMo and editing a different piece of work. Now this goes some way to explaining why.
Have a listen and let me know your thoughts.

That’s a really interesting topic, Rebecca. Truth be told, I’m torn at times as to whether it’s best to work on one thing at a time or juggle projects. Hmm…… Thanks for sharing this.
Rebecca Bradley says
I”m like you, Margot, I never know which is best to work on one thing at once or a couple. Though recently I do seem to be progressing well while working on a couple of things at once so I’m going with that while it’s working for me.
