Businessman stressed by too many tasks

The executive brain center is the center of the brain that efficiently allocates the brain resources to specific tasks. It is highly effective and efficient because the brain can not manage more than one high level brain function at a time.  This therefore dispels the myth that people can multi task. In fact what happens, the brain quickly shifts from one task to another. This shift takes time and energy and reduces efficiency by up to 40%. Additionally, there is less fulfillment, more stress and overwhelm and less awareness of the conditions at the time.
