It’s hard to focus in an office space. Add to that the constant sounds of notifications from your phone, email, text messages, and it’s a wonder we get any work done at all. Especially if you are in a job where you actually have to think. So, what can we do?
Try to minimize distractions. Schedule time in your day when you will check email. For example, in a hour, check email once. Answer to imp messages right away, and star the others for a “Email Answer Time” scheduled in your planner.
