People don't just cook anymore — they're cooking, texting, talking on the phone, watching YouTube and uploading photos of the awesome meal they just made. Designer Paolo Cardini questions the efficiency of our multitasking world and makes the case for — gasp — "monotasking."

Hey guys, welcome back to another Minecraft video! Today SkyDoesMinecraft is playing the Minecraft Multitask Challenge, as suggested to him by House_Owner! Ross explains the concept to him – do a lot of things at the same time and don’t slip up or you’ll die. As they spawn into the map Sky asks a little more about the game – meanwhile, he walks backwards right off the edge. In the next attempt Sky tests whether or not he can push Ross off the edge by hitting him, and he nearly does before Ross talks him down. Their first challenge is to use a Brick of Banishment to beat up Creepers, but Sky gets startled by Ross and uses his brick to punch him off the map. Ross resolves not to give him any tips anymore, and Sky is immediately killed by a full stack of diamonds. The challenge is getting a little trickier now, with fishing and Blaze attacking and Silverfish and the Brick of Banishment and, to top it off, the Wizard. Blaze knocks Ross off and Sky is killed by the Wizard for not casting the requested spell. They have another go at it and Ross immediately pushes Sky off the edge – then it turns into a murder suicide when Ross realizes he can’t live without the brick he just threw off. It’s getting insanely complicated now, with falling anvils and creeping Creepers and world borders and webs and killer diamonds. The Silverfish kill Sky in the end, and Ross starts losing it with everything he has to do. Ross’ panic ends up leading him off the edge of the map and he dies again. In their final round, they have to dodge arrows and keep their xp up while also defending against fireballs and milking cows. Sky is killed by the diamonds again, and then Ross is knocked off and screams gracefully. That’s it for this Minecraft Multitask Challenge – thanks for watching, and we’ll see you next time!
How do you keep track of all the chores, tasks and obligations in your life every day? Psychologist Dr. Cynthia Green, author of Total Memory Workout, has tips to help you multitask effectively.
Tips on multitasking effectively
We are so driven to get more stuff done in a shorter amount of time that we let important tasks fall through the cracks. Learn how to efficiently multitask by reducing distractions and knowing your limits.
* Our attention span is limited. Learn to keep track of only whats important, while avoiding distractions.
* Learn to focus. When working on a task, resist the urge to respond to every email and return every phone call.
* Use mental games to train yourself to have a longer attention span. Things like games can help build your attention span.
* Be organized. Use tools like lists and reminder notes to keep track of everything.
* Spend time at the end of the day to regroup and reprocess the information.

Multitasking is a myth, says McGill University Psychology Professor Daniel Levitin. Switching focus across tasks comes at a neurological cost, depleting chemicals we need to concentrate. Levitin's latest book is "The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload" (http://goo.gl/hdavb8).

Transcript — It turns out that multitasking is a myth. We think that we're doing a whole bunch of things at once. But we're not actually because the brain doesn't work that way. In a number of studies now have shown from Earl Miller's lab at MIT and others that what we're really doing is we're paying attention to one thing for a little bit of time and then another and then another and then we come back around to the first. And all of these are separate projects that are occurring in separate parts of the brain, they require a separate start time, a separate monitoring process. And you end up fractionating your attention into little bits and pieces, not really engaging fully in any one thing. All that switching across tasks comes with a neurobiological cost. It depletes resources. So after an hour or two of attempting to multitask, if we find that we're tired and we can't focus, it's because those very neural chemicals we needed to focus are now gone.
There are some jobs that require, not multitasking because we know it doesn't exist but this kind of a rapid switching, I'm an air traffic controller, simultaneous translator at the UN, journalists, monitoring all these different things at once. And we can take a tip from the air traffic controllers who, as part of their duty cycle, are required after every hour and a half or two hours of work it's mandated that they take a 15 to 30 minute break. And that means an unplugged disconnected break where they go for a walk or listen to music, they exercise, something to restore all of the burned up neurochemicals.
You might ask during this period of our evolution when there's all this information is the brain adapting and changing? And yes it is. The brain adapts and changes all the time. Evolution is happening all the time. Unfortunately it's rather sluggish. We talk about it in terms of evolutionary lag and generally speaking it takes about 20, 000 years for the brain to catch up with the way the environment is in terms of how it's encoded in the genome. So 20, 000 years from now our brains may have evolved to deal with it. In the meantime we have to employee strategies, just a little bit more self-disciplined then we currently use to filter out unwanted or unnecessary input. I'm not talking about never letting something frivolous or fun in, but I'm talking about adopting a kind of a habit of allowing yourself to focus on one thing at a time for at least a few hours a day.

This is my attempt of 663 seconds (yes, it's possible!), cut to fit on youtube. Tips in the video. I didn't know what song is in this game, so no sound, unfortunately.
(For those who don't read all of the comments: the game lags towards the end. That's the game's fault, not mine...)
I did 663 because my friend DodaMercenary (at the time ranked #1 overall on kongregate) challenged me to beat his score of 628. I wouldn't miss this opportunity!
