Hi, Eric:
During a career in investigations; civil rights; and, administrative law I was skeptical of the popularly extolled practice of multi-tasking. I had been taught to do a few things well, rather than being expected to do a greater number poorly. This of course flew in the face of competitive rigour and great expectation. I watched as multitaskers screwed up while being praised by superiors. This was politics with a small p. With the right sort of support and influence, those wunderkind got ahead easily. As Jimmy Carter once said: life is unfair.
