Nowadays, it is very rare to see people working on only one project. Most of the time, people are tasked to do multiple projects in one go because of the demand for certain skill sets that only you can do.
Besides in the corporate world, working on multiple projects are something I am familiar with as a freelancer. You can’t be doing only one project for one client. Unless that client pays you a lot to justify full concentration on his assignments. I usually juggle not more than 3 at a time because I want to distribute my attention fairly to each project I take on.
While multitasking can be good to speed up productivity and reduce costs, it is actually very bad for one’s mental health especially if it happens regularly. It can disrupt one’s attention and the quality of the work, as well as increase one’s stress levels.
