Dealing with interruptions

  • Procrastinate on purpose: you can limit distractions' impact on your productivity by simply adding them to your to-do list to come back to later.
  • Keep a “read later” listfor the helpful articles you come across.
  • Keep a “bright ideas” repository: keep a running list of thoughts you want to come back to later (using an app or paper).
  • Set aside exploratory time. Unfocused, agenda-free thinking time is essential for creativity and professional development.
