I agree with that for the most part. But a book I really enjoyed, Flow, said that the brain will tell you when it is really enjoying itself, i.e. you get that "flow" experience, which for me quite often happens when I am knocking out several small tasks that fit in well with my goals and objectives. It is a fine line though, between being able to concentrate on one thing and not neglecting others. I think a good analogy is a project "critical path diagram". You have to stay focused on keeping the critical path moving.
