Higher Ed: Working Efficiently Versus Working Well

Mar 26, 2017

"Job well done." What does that mean, exactly? That someone got a lot accomplished or that someone did a few things very well? Multitasking is often praised as a valuable skill, but what are we sacrificing for speed? In this episode of KUT's podcast Higher Ed, KUT's Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger work their way through a discussion on quantity and quality when it comes to getting stuff done.


Not many people are encouraged to "strive for less," but Ed and Jennifer explore if less can actually be better when it comes to getting tasks done. Click here for their discussion as well as the newest puzzler. It's a bit tricky; no multitasking while you try to solve it!
