OVERVIEW

According to Jonathan Spira, interruptions cost the US economy almost $1 trillion annually, and eat up to 28 billion hours each year.

Clearly, in order to get work done, we need to know how to manage interruptions at work.

Busy and productive are two different things. You can be busy and get nothing done. We need to be productive, and to be productive we need to figure out how to handle all the things that come our way each day; all the interruptions that derail our thought process.

It’s pretty much impossible to get through a day with no interruptions, but managing them is the key to your improved productivity and sanity!

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Have you ever had one of those days where you ran around like a chicken with its head cut off? You didn’t have time for breaks, lunch, or anything on your to-do list? You were insanely busy, yet you didn’t get anything done?

Interruptions. When we look at all the times we are interrupted each day, we are not surprised that we didn’t get anything done, yet we are interrupted by “OUR JOB!”
