This amazing TED talk by Jason Fried explores the problem of office distractions. Like how trying to get stuff done at your desk is like voluntarily loading your day into a Cuisinart that shreds your productivity into tiny little bits. That can't be glued back together again. I know of what Fried speaks. Last year, after ten years of working from a home office, I did a brief stint on site. I was stunned by how hard it was to think and complete even the simplest tasks. Writing a solid letter at home might take 2-3 hours plus editing time. In the office? My time on similar work could stretch into days or even a week or even TWO. I wasn't prepared for that! Does your work suffer because of office chaos?
