The first important aspect is you plan ahead. So, don’t wait until you are in the middle of the first task to do decide what else you want to accomplish. A great place to start is with a to-do list?

Two or three tasks in two or three hours time slot can ensure that you’re giving yourself enough time to work on each task and give it the attention it deserves.


The second most important thing is to combine similar tasks to work on at the same time. Multitasking in and of itself is a complicated process.  Many believe it can’t be done. But in order to master effective, multitasking, it’s vital that the task you’re working on, have a similar thread. 
If your mind is going to be jumping around from task to task. It’s necessary that the task have something in common as your short-term memory can only handle so much whether they are all a part of the same project or they all they involve the same process.

Third, eliminate distractions, distractions are your enemies. Distractions can be detrimental even when you’re working on the simplest of tasks. 
So when trying to juggle multiple projects at once, they could spell disaster. This might mean keeping the door to your office closed while working in the office around you.
Distractions can be anything like gossiping coworkers, colleague’s phone calls and the smell of the pizza being created in the kitchen, etc.
