Before taking the self quiz “Multitasking and Attention”, I would say that when I multitask it does affect my attention but I think that I’m still capable to stay on track sometimes.  For example, just as I am doing this assignment I am listening to music, watching  TV, and on social media. That’s something that I guess has become a habit of mine, using different things at the same time. I do notice that sometimes when I try doing different tasks at the same time I may not have the full attention to my original task and just drift off getting distracted but at the end I’m still able to complete the task I have to. After taking the “Multitasking and Attention” quiz, I got a score of five. According to the quiz, a five means that someone spends a lot of time multitasking and finds it difficult to stay focus on one task at at time. I wasn’t surprised with the quiz results as I do find myself multitasking sometimes too much  and this breaks up my focus of the original task. I do believe that I need do reduce my multitasking to help me be more attentive to my work. Some things that I could do to minimize my multitasking is to try to reduce the task I do at a time. I feel that it would be difficult for me to just focus one hundred percent to one task right now but I cut down on number of tasks I do. Something else that I could do is put down all technology down that I don’t need  when trying to accomplish something to stay focus. I do understand that sometimes doing many things would reduce my production of getting things done, so I would attempt  to focus my attention on just one thing at a time.
