The Myth of Multitasking
Multitasking Doesn’t Work―Learn What Does!
“…multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money. Most of all, it robs us of life and our relationships with others.” ―Chuck Norris, world-renowned actor and martial artist
Through anecdotal and real-world examples, The Myth of Multitasking proves that multitasking hurts your focus and productivity. Instead, learn how to be more effective by doing one thing at a time.
Productivity and effective time management end with multitasking. The false idea that multitasking is productive has become even more prevalent and damaging to our productivity and well-being since the first edition of The Myth of Multitasking was published in 2008. In this revised and updated second edition, author and productivity expert Dave Crenshaw provides a solution for the chaos of distraction that multitasking creates―and a way to combat the temptation to constantly switch between tasks.
Learn how to actually get things done. Dave Crenshaw takes the idea of multitasking as a productivity tool and smashes it to smithereens. But rather than leaving you with the burden of wading through the wreckage all by yourself, he shows you how to focus, move forward, and free up more time for what you value the most.
As an author, speaker, and online trainer, Dave Crenshaw is a master of building productive leaders.
The irony of Dave’s productive mission is his inherently chaotic and unfocused nature. When he was clinically diagnosed as “off-the-charts” ADHD he took this as a personal challenge and developed simple systems to be organized and productive despite himself. Now, hundreds of thousands of high-performers worldwide utilize Dave’s training to improve focus, productivity, and profitability.
Dave has decades of experience training leaders in Fortune 500 companies, universities, and organizations of every size. His humorous and engaging approach always hits the mark with audiences. His speeches are described as dynamic and life-changing.
Dave’s courses on LinkedIn Learning—such as Time Management Fundamentals and Improving Your Focus—are consistently among the most popular in the world and have received tens of millions of views. His five books have been published in eight languages, the most popular of which is The Myth of Multitasking—a time management bestseller.
He also frequently appears in the news worldwide, including TIME magazine, FastCompany, USA Today and the BBC News. However, Dave is most proud of being cited by Chuck Norris in The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book.
He is the founder and CEO of Invaluable Inc., a coaching and training corporation that promotes productive leadership on both the personal and organizational level.
Dave lives in the shadow of Utah’s Rocky Mountains with his wife and children.
