I've tried to make a transcribe:


the fact is the multitasking is a myth. Our brain can't do it. You simply become less efficient and more distracted your error rate goes up fifty percent and it takes it twice as long to do a same task.
Listen what Tim Jakane has to say, he's a co-founder of point B, a leading business consulting firm.
Well, it's a fallacy out there, the folks can multitask are more effective, there is a time when it's just important to focus on one thing, I think we also need to get people permission to check out, the check out of the communications network temporarily to get things done, because when you're always on when you're always online, you're always distracted, right, and the brain mode's telling us that is very unproductive mode to be in. So the always online organisation is actually always unproductive organisation.

Hi, I also tried to make a transcribe:

The fact is multitasking is a myth. Our brain can't do it. You simply become less efficient and more distracted. Your error rate goes up 50% and it takes you twice as long to do the same task. Listen to what Tim Jacon has to say. He's the co-founder Point - a living business consulting firm.
Well, it's the fallacy out there, the folks that can multitask is more effective. There is time when it's just important to focus on one thing. I think we also need to get people commission to check out, to check out the communication's network temporarily to get things done. Because when you're always on, you're always online you are always distracted. All right? And the brain mode's telling us that is the very unproductive mode to be in.So the always online organization is actually always the unproductive organization.

The fact is, multitasking is a myth. Our brains can't do it. You simply become less efficient and more distracted. Your error rate goes up 50% and it takes you twice as long to do the same task.
Listen to what Tim Jenkins has to say, he's the co-founder of Point B, a leading business consulting firm.

Well, I think there’s a fallacy out there that folks who can multitask are more effective. There are times when it's just as important to focus on one thing. I think we also need to get people permission to check out, to check out the communications network temporarily to get things done, because when you're always on, when you're always online, you're always distracted, right? And the brain will tell us that is a very unproductive mode to be in. So the always-on-line organization is actually always unproductive organization.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. A
2. D, E

In question 2, why are the other answers wrong? I'll try to explain:

A - He describes this as a "fallacy" - a mistaken belief.
B - He says there are TIMES when it's important to focus on one thing (not ALWAYS).
C - He says that people need permission to "check out of the communications network" - in other words, people need to be allowed to escape from communications while they do their work. The permission is to "check out", not to get things done.

Listen to D and E, and try to understand why they are the correct answers.

FROM SIMON:

A few people tried transcribing what they heard. This is a great way to do some 'deeper' listening practice. I'll do my own transcription for next Tuesday.

Dear Simon, this is my transcription.
The fact is multitasking is a myth. Our brain can't do it. You simply become less efficient and more distracted. You error rate goes up 15% and it takes you twice as long to do the same task.
Listen what Tim Janson has to say. He's a co-founder of point B, a leading business consulting firm.
"Well, it is a fallacy out there, the folks that can multitask are more effective. There's a time when it's just important to focus on one thing. I think we also need to get people permission to check out, to check out the communications network, temporarily to get things done. Because when you're on , you're always online, you're also distracted. Right, and the brain will be telling us that it is a very unproductive mode to be in. And so, the online organisation is actually always unproductive organisation."

Here is my transcription:

The fact is multitasking is a myth, our brain can't do it. You simply become less efficient and more distracted, your error rate goes up to 50% and it takes you twice as long to do the sames tasks.

Listen to Tim Jacob has to say. He is the co-founder of Point B - a leading business consultant firm.

There's fallacy out there that folks can multitask are more effective. There are times when it's important to focus on one thing. I think we all need to get people permission to check out, to check out the communication network early to get things done. Because when you are always on, when you are always online, you're always distracted, right. And the brain will tell us that's is very unproductive mode to be in. So the always online organization is also an always unproductive organization.
