More means less

Why is it that whenever I get really busy with work, my productivity drops through the floor? I have about 10 projects that have to get done and none of them are moving at a sufficently expedient rate for me.

Is it because when we get so innundated we feel that it will never end and so become less productive due to some feeling of hopelessness? Or is it just that since stuff keeps coming in that we loose our concentration, or flow, and so have to start back in everytime our email client make a noise?

I certainly hope that Im not alone in this feeling. I know being busy means making money, but being late costs money, and that defeats the whole purpose of being busy.
