Are you plagued by interruptions? Do they destroy your productivity? Does it seem like you can’t go even ½ hour without an email, a phone call, or a text message vying for your time and attention? It makes it difficult to concentrate and get any work done.  If so, it’s time to take charge!

Here are a few ideas to help:

  • Set times when you will reply to emails, phone calls and text messages
  • Set a length of time you’ll spend replying (like 20-30 minutes)
  • Turn off your email program and don’t have your cell phone on your desk

Some interruptions are good – like a prospective client calling – but the majority of interruptions could easily wait until a more opportune time. Use the above ideas to take control of your day.
