6 Everyday Time-Savers
The average person is interrupted 50 times a day, and the average interruption takes 5 minutes. Many interruptions are crucial; some are anything but. For one week, log every interruption, noting who perpetrated it, how much time it took, and a rating of importance: A=crucial, B=important, C=little value, and D=no value. Evaluate the results, then take action to eliminate some of the C and D interruptions.
