Today, the American professional comes standard with an arsenal of instant-gratification gadgets: the Internet, the cell phone, the fax machine, the Blackberry. We can get any information we want exactly when we want it. The weather in Kazakhstan? Done. The latest Madonna-inspired fashion trend in London? You bet. The options are limitless, but the consequence of all this convenience—all this instantaneous knowledge—is that the modern workday never ends. Our stress is higher, our deadlines shorter, and, worst of all, the office can follow us home. To counter this breakneck pace, busy Americans everywhere rely on multitasking—the art of doing more work in less time by juggling several tasks at once.

These individuals struggle with organization, prioritization and time management. They overlook details, need extra motivational nudges and may not socialize well with the rest of the staff. Perhaps the biggest difference of all, however, is that people with ADHD have difficulty transitioning from one task to the next. They are the modern world’s anti-multitaskers.
