Lots of secular speakers talk about multitasking (not), mindfulness, or avoiding what frum speakers call pizur hanefesh. My thinking is that it’s related to the question of mazimizing vs. satisfying decision making (do you need the best choice or just a satisfactory one). In audio roundup terms, there are some speakers who require complete attention (and may even need to be slowed down to 1.5. especially in Hebrew) and there are some perfect to listening to at 2.5 while paying the bills.
