You: Hey, T, how's that modified single tasking going? Did you finish revising that short story you were planning to work on this month?
Me: SQUIRREL! (runs off chasing real and imaginary playthings).
I used to be highly efficient and extremely productive. No, really, I did. I don't know what happened. I could blame lots of things. For example, my students in Pop Culture will be debating the influence of digital culture on productivity Monday. I giggled when one admitted that she HAS to check Facebook before she starts writing a paper. Guilty. Of course, I've been a cyber-junkie for at least ten years, so I'm not sure it's fair to look in that direction.
