The Literary Drover No. 3114

I will humbly and respectfully, politely and simply refute the accolade because for me it was and remains a matter of common sense: From the first I rejected the notion that it was possible to succeed while doing more than one thing at a time – that dishonest superlative “multi-tasking”.

Science has determined that doing more than one thing at a time is not only a path to failure but it also has detrimental effects on the brain and can contribute to memory issues later in life. Although the brain itself can process multiple things at the same time you cannot manage more than one task at a time and the more you persist in doing so the less likely you are to do anything that may be considered an accomplishment of worth and merit.
