Why You Can't Get Work Done at Work.

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?
