As we explored last week at the blog, distractions are rife within the virtual and remote work. From things that “need to get done” to requests from neighbours, to the ping of incessant email… What are the distractions that are pulling you off course?
Distractions may be interruptions, and as we know from the research of Dr Gloria Marks, it can take upwards of 22 minutes to get back on track after an interruption.
Distractions can be bigger than that as well – pieces of work which feel like work, but are they adding to the bottom line of the business? Are they making the impact and contribution you are looking for?
This week consider what are the distractions you are facing at the moment. To figure out if it’s a distraction consider if it’s:
- An interruption?
- A piece of work not linked to the main parts of your work?
Enjoy your reflections!
