Average US Worker Has 50 Interruptions A Day… And The Rest!
Here’s your shot of weekly inspiration:
When Mr. Deming made this comment I’d say he wouldn’t have imagined what email and the internet would do to the number of interruptions the average person can experience a day.
How many interruptions do you think you have a day? And how many are to do with your top 20% priorities? (i.e. the 20% that get you 80% of the results)
If you’re not sure, it’s well worth tracking it for a day or a week. You’ll probably get a shock like most people I work with.
We all have to deal with interruptions But do we all have a strategy for dealing with them?
We’ll blame others for interrupting butin reality, there are ways to manage these interruptions better on our side.
I regularly hear a comment from clever business people along the lines of “I was flying to the UK last week and I couldn’t believe the amount of work I got through in 1 day”.
Food for thought…
Have a great week,
