Context Switching

Each extra task or "context" you switch eats up 20-80% of your overall productivity.

Notes

  • Context switching happens when you jump between tasks.

    • You're on call, but at the same time, you're working on a document.
    • You're watching a movie and checking your mobile.
    • You're writing an email and talking if your coworker.
  • It kills productivity.

  • It happens when you do multitasking.

  • Each extra task or "context" you switch eats up 20-80% of your overall productivity.
