Marc Heshon and Jonathan Littman,
Authors of I Hate People!,
share,
in Spirit Magazine,
“The average worker
faces at least 73 interruptions a day.”

Stay-at-home writers have
the same issues.
During the summer,
I simply don’t answer phone calls
or emails
during my writing time.

Now that I’m looking
to return to business gigs,
I don’t have that luxury
(because I like those last minute assignments).
Yes, a call from a telemarketer
may take a minute to answer
but it takes a good half hour
to find my creative flow again.
Productivity has plummeted.

If you can,
set aside dedicated uninterrupted time.
You’ll get more done
than you imagine.
