Interruptions Won’t Go Away
How many times have you said or thought, “I can’t get my work done because of all the interruptions!”? They are a curse to your concentration and productivity.
Interruptions Aren’t The Problem
The problem with interruptions is the level of stress and frustration they create that, over time, culminates into feeling overwhelmed, overworked and generally…over it. But if you aren’t going to do anything different, of course they will continue to wear you down. Being short with people, working longer and wishing for a better life are poor work-arounds for not managing your interruptions.
When you feel frustrated by diversions, it’s a message to you that you aren’t managing them well enough. Don’t take it out on others and don’t simply absorb them by working longer. Remember—interruptions aren’t the problem. Your unwillingness to manage them is. So here’s your chance for a re-do. These suggestions are from your colleagues.
Manage Your Interruptions Better
The point is this: only you can manage your distractions. If you don’t, you are left to be frustrated, stressed and overwhelmed. So do something different and manage your interruptions better.
