    I think this is one of those innate human traits that gets overridden in our modern lives.

    I notice it myself even when doing simple things like chores. Honing in on one task gets it done better and faster than juggling 3-5 at once. Ot doesn't seem remotely natural or healthy for our minds to be in this constant state of distractions and multiple workloads at once.

    I blame the lack of free time in our modern lives. I do my best professional work when I'm only doing half days. I do my best domestic work when I don't feel rushed to do so.

    That in turn is blamed on the clocks. Switching to a system that rewards accomplishing tasks efficiently without an expectation of hours worked would allow people to work at their own pace and achieve better work/life balance.
