The question: to multitask or not to multitask

I found an article that asks the question: Is multitasking really more efficient? We live in a society that demands that our attention remains divided between multiple tasks all at the same time. But does that really mean that we are more efficient? When is it time to say that enough is enough?
The truth is that, as we take on more and more tasks, we actually become less efficient. If we try to do more than one or two things at once, it becomes that much harder for people to accomplish anything.
At no time is this more apparent then when someone is using a cell phone while driving a car. These are two mutually exclusive items that should be kept separate at all times. Over the years, there have been many studies done that have shown that usisng a cell phone while driving a car causes the driver to shift as much as seventy to eighty percent of their mental resources away from driving to the conversation that realistically could (and should) have gone to voice mail.
