About Task Saturation:

  • Task saturation is what all of us may face while working in a challenging environment. It can be considered as a synonym of being overworked, but it is even more serious:
  • Task saturation is when the summary impact of all tasks which we need to do at the moment is so strong, that our capability to properly cope with them decreases rapidly (we become saturated with the tasks), so we cannot perform any one of these tasks proficiently enough anymore, and we become disoriented and confused.
