I’m most effective with large blocks of uninterrupted time, because of that, it may seem like I’m not a fan of meetings, and will opt for async communication as default. This seems to work well when paired with ad-hoc meetings
I do not like to multi-task, context switching is expensive for me as it takes quite some effort for me to transition into a task. While I have gotten better at it, I still tend to stay away. That’s why I like to start and take tasks to completion before taking on new stuff.
Context switching requires re-loading state into your brain - this is just the cognitive load associated with task switching
