Multi-tasking is an increasingly common and important element of people’s responsibilities at every level. Yet many people can find it difficult to work as effectively as they would like when having to juggle and prioritise a wide variety of activities in their working day and week, and this can make their workload seem far heavier than they feel comfortable with.
