Publisher's Note

How many of you consider yourself to be a multitasker? Well, if you're French, you probably don't. I recently read a quote from a business woman in France who proudly stated: "I never eat at my desk - it's multitasking and anti-French." I then did my own investigating to verify the sentiment, which was completely accurate. I love it.

On the other end of the spectrum, I know a man who juggles two phones at once, types e-mails while talking on both phones, opens mail and occasionally eats a sandwich simultaneously. There's no way this can be productive. I told him if he gets this way of life perfected he should join the circus. On a side note: he's never slopped any sandwich ingredients on his keyboard, which is amazing to me. Rob Nance
