You already know how to start commands from your shell:

# try a quick command
ls /home

But despite your operating system being multitasked, did you notice your shell is blocked when you start long-lived commands?

# download a large file
wget yesik.it/unix.se.7z

Hopefully, your shell can start a command as a background process. That way you can continue working on your terminal while a lengthy task is going on. You can also spawn several concurrent background tasks and wait for all of them to be completed. Or trigger some action like displaying an error message if a command fails.
