As a lawyer I have to concentrate for long periods of time on a specific task such as drafting a long and complex agreement. I enjoy drafting. I like "getting into the zone" and focussing my mind in an almost meditative way on producing the draft, ensuring it works legally, checking I've converted my clients issues into solid, tight clauses, and eliminating errors. I don't like being interrupted and having to try to multitask. In fact I've always said I don't conform to the female stereotype of an excellent multitasker. Even in my out of work like I like to complete one thing before starting another. So I was delighted to read that multitasking is a myth and even harmful to us!
