The 2 kinds of distractions

  • Sensory distractions (External): The things happening around us like colleagues talking, phones ringing, people moving around us, music playing, etc.
  • Emotional distractions (Internal). The thoughts that make our attention drift from what we’re doing. For example, remembering a phone call you need to return or thinking about an upcoming meeting.
