This weekend I am racing my first triathlon, an event that combines three sports. Last night I was practicing transitioning from one sport to the next and felt thoroughly silly doing it. I’ve trained for races in the past, but training for three sports at once was more challenging, as much from a time management/scheduling type perspective as from a physical one.
1. Most difficult micro-level multi-tasking you’ve participated in, that is to say balancing multiple specific tasks at a moment in time.
2. Most difficult macro-level multi-tasking you’ve participated in, balancing multiple larger items over a course of time.
3. The dark side of multi-tasking – when has some one’s insistence on doing multiple things at once either annoyed you or caused you harm?
4. When has an inability to multi-task really hurt you?
5. Is it even possible to not multi-task in modern society?
Bonus: Now that we've had a few days to digest, give us your thoughts on the Zimmer pick/the draft generally.
