Despite not having any data to back it up I’m pretty confident that I can get as much done in one hour of uninterrupted time as I can get done in three hours of interrupted time.

The interruptions might be short calls or a brief meeting but the loss of focus from these interruptions can cause significant loss of time in getting back on task.

Since it’s difficult to get rid of these interruptions (since most are work related so without the interruptions there wouldn’t be work) my solution is coming in early before the interruptions start, or working on weekends when there are very few interruptions.

If you can find a way to carve out some time without interruptions, do it and see how much more productive you can be.

Have a great day!
