I sat down to write this post two hours ago. Then I got distracted. I took a phone call, that led to a couple of follow-up tasks, and then two emails came in that I could deal with in under ten minutes, so I took care of those, too. Then I had to deal with the coffee pot someone left brewing on the stove. . . (burning coffee. . and I don’t even drink the stuff.) Now, here I am, trying to get back on task while part of my brain freaks out about how late it is.
Imagine how much we could get done if we worked in a distraction free environment? Since that’s not going to happen, Ask.com distracted office workers all over America by asking them what could be done to help them achieve maximum productivity.
