Temptations and Interruptions

Distractions can be either:

  • Temptations: When we take a break from work to check social media
  • Interruptions: When we get annoyed or repeated emails disrupting our workflow.

While we can deal with these external problems, what can be more challenging is our internal urge to be distracted.

A big cause of stress comes from trying to control things that you can’t. And a distraction due to lack of control turns into an excuse, guilt, and credit. People stay distracted, mostly with things that they cannot control, lying to themselves and others that it is the outside circumstances that are making them act this way.
