Research has demonstrated the inefficiency of multitasking. Gorillas drive home the point.
Okay, not real gorillas. Just the one in the suit featured by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons in their book, The Invisible Gorilla. The authors explain inattentional blindness—why people don’t notice the unexpected.

The CEO of Uber recently posed one of the most important questions leaders can ask about their own organizations.
Appearing during the first week of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Travis Kalanick was asked about the future of Uber. He focused on Uber Eats, an on-demand food delivery service being quietly rolled out in select cities.
