Communications come at us from multiple directions these days, and they all break our concentration.
The effect on our demeanour can be the equivalent to sleep deprivation and stress levels start to rise.
Setting boundaries is one way to deal with this problem, a nice, fat DO NOT DISTURB note on your office door should do the trick. Hit the privacy buttons on your office phone and mobile, close Outlook, and concentrate on the thorny tasks that demand your attention.
However, sooner or later, you will have to resurface and deal with the anxious faces in your office, the bulging INBOX, the missed calls on your phones, social media traffic to scan and respond to, and all this will no doubt need to be done yesterday.
Despite the best intentions of numerous communication guru’s and so-called experts, this is a process that is unremitting and remorseless.
And do you get the shakes when your calls are all returned, the staff are suspiciously quiet, and your INBOX is almost empty? Communication is an essential part of the daily grind and the increasing demands on our time and personal space can be quite addictive. Does the infrequent lack of demand mean that you are failing in some way, or does it mean that you have cracked it: found some miraculous system to manage your daily contact tasks?
If you have, could you share your tactics?
