In my former work with the UN it was critical for us as leaders to shut the door for half an hour regularly. Even with urgent issues around us, we needed time to focus and plan. Without this time to focus and get things done, things piled up, and the important things did not get done. It took focus, consistency and communication with others to make sure that this focused work did happen on as frequently as possible a basis. Over time it became part of the way we worked as leaders and part of our culture.
Change takes time, and it takes consistent effort to make sure important things do happen!
When will you start closing your door, or moving to work in a different location, for short burst to get things done?
