Excerpt from ‘Reduce Interruptions…you don’t have to be a victim‘.
Reducing unnecessary interruptions can help us avoid several unpleasant things: frustration with work and colleagues, resumption lags, and lower-quality results. However, what are we working toward? What are we trying to achieve? Focus is the answer. In psychology circles, a state of energized focus is called “flow.” Flow occurs when we are fully involved in a task, overcoming obstacles with ease, and producing results that give us personal satisfaction and contentment. Does this sound too good to be true? Research shows that 20% of people achieve flow every day, while another 15% say that this has never happened to them. Flow is desirable and worth pursuing.
