Multi-tasking at 50
I'm 50 years old today. You'd think I'd know better at "my age" but lately I’ve been jumping from one task to another to another to another. I’ve read that men cannot multi-task; apparently we multi-thread instead. True or not, it feels true. It seems like I’ve been multi-tasking or multi-threading or something but I haven’t really been getting anything done. In any case, I know I've been thrashing. From:
In computer science, thrash is the term used to describe a degenerate situation on a computer where increasing resources are used to do a decreasing amount of work. Usually it refers to two or more processes accessing a shared resource repeatedly such that serious system performance degradation occurs because the system is spending a disproportionate amount of time just accessing the shared resource. Resource access time may generally be considered as wasted, since it does not contribute to the advancement of any process.once suggested that you make a list of everything that you want to do, prioritize the list, and throw the bottom half away. Good plan! Sounds like I need to plan a Product Management Day! Do you?
