Did you know, each interruption on a task makes it take 15-20% longer! You are also 300% more likely to make an error if you have to “start” working on a task more than once!

Here are a few suggestions on how to avoid these interruptions:

  1. Work In “Spurts”.
    1. Schedule quiet time if possible.
    2. Have quiet places to go to work.
    3. Don’t interrupt others – they won’t interrupt you.
  2. Focus and finish.
    1. Be a little crazy about finishing what you start.
      1. Don’t “take a break”, and then start something else.
      2. Use “real” deadlines to force yourself to finish.
      3. Set enough time aside for a task before you start it.
  3. Do your worst task first.
    1. Your sense of accomplishment goes way up!
    2. You end your day with easier tasks – relaxing!
