It's come to this

Given my goals for the summer, this article in the New York Times caught my "attention."
“Multitasking is a myth. . . . You cannot do two things at once. The mechanism of attention is selection: it’s either this or it’s that.” She points to calculations that the typical person’s brain can process 173 billion bits of information over the course of a lifetime.

Attention is a finite resource.
