Multi-Tasking Mistakes: When The To-Do List Takes Over
Multi-tasking. We’ve all heard this word before. And, likely, a good many of you reading this have probably used this phrase as a skill on a resume or in passing at the office. I certainly have. In small offices and on small teams in big corporations, multi-tasking is a way of life; there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get things done without doing it. Despite this fact, I have to break the bad news: multi-tasking isn’t a real skill. I’m sure this statement will be met with some opposition, but in my very humble opinion, it’s true. Multi-tasking is more so something that happens to a person, rather than a skill. And after time, the brain is trained to run that way.
In my experience in working within the B2B gift card space, I have seen this way of life firsthand. It is truly more of an intricate industry than anyone could realize. While the industry is large and growing, the amount of players involved grows at a much slower rate. This means that the number of sales channels, the number of contacts within those channels, the number website listings, and the number of marketing opportunities will keep increasing; all while many companies operate on a small gift card division budget. This is where Stoner Bunting Gift Cards comes in. We take the work that you have been multi-tasking and we spread it out among our industry experts within our service departments.

While I did say that multi-tasking isn’t a real skill, I should scale that back and just say that it’s not something that many people can excel in. And not for lack of trying or ability. The mind can only focus on so many things at one time. So don’t beat yourself up if the confusing day-to-day rush of the gift card world is overwhelming.
