What did Elli dislike?

Arianna Huffington

She hated multitasking. In fact, the last time my mother got angry with me before she died was when she saw me reading my email and talking to my children at the same time.

"I abhor multitasking," she said, in a Greek accent that puts mine to shame. In other words, being connected in a shallow way to the entire world can prevent us from being deeply connected to those closest to us -- including ourselves. And that is where wisdom is found.
