4. Interruptions
If you must leave your email open, at least switch off the pop up box and dinging of email notifications so that you can focus on the task at hand.  If you are in an office, work with your team to let them know not to interrupt you, but rather arrange a time to meet at the start or end of the day to review questions or close your office door.  Each time you are interrupted, by email or by physical interruption, you can kiss at least 5 minutes or more of your day goodbye.  If you are in an open plan office, try using technology such as ear buds or a headset to discourage others from interrupting you.  Other options to consider might be changing your desk placement so your vision isn’t disrupted by others moving by your desk.
