Multi-tasking, that is trying to do two things simultaneously such as texting and driving, is a poor idea. Your brain can only process one activity at a time. Moreover, when you switch activities, it usually takes 10-20 minutes to get back to 100 percent concentration.
However, there are at least two exceptions to this rule, especially when there is a gap in your schedule. First, listening to training or inspirational CDs while you are driving can be a great way to strengthen your skills. Another smart way to capitalize on gaps in your schedule is to do your social media posts or to write handwritten notes to clients during quiet times on open house or when you’re waiting for an appointment.
Remember, interruptions break your concentration and make you less efficient. Taking advantage of small gaps in your schedule wisely, however, can shorten your work week considerably.
