Multitask to Get Boring Things Done

I hate writing school work for reasons you must have guessed (ya, who writes when we can type). But should I get through school, I must get through those too. So how do I scrape through?
I multitask.

For, this post is being written along with my assignments. I write one sentence here. I write one paragraph there. By the time I finish this post, I will finish 3-4 pages there.

So, combine boring stuff with interesting stuff to get both stuff done.

Why this works: Boring stuff are boring because they are usually repetitive tasks like copying, calculating, etc that require less or no active involvement. So, when we are doing such things our brain will be working less, and soon it starts sleeping.
But when we mix interesting things with boring things, our brain gets an alternating current shock of rest and activity, keeping us awake.

May be this was written when multi-tasking didn't mean talkin on the phone while driving while reading the newspaper...

This article's about doing 1 task for 10 minutes, another for the next 10 minutes, and so on... It's really uni-tasking again and again..
