Learn how to work without distractions from author Gina Trapani in this office environment keynote. In today's busy culture, it's easy to get caught up in diversions and losing track of the time. This results in undermining important work and costing a company money, some seriously negative effects. Trapani advises that there is a way around this, and the solution lies in time blocking. Since the brain requires at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted time to dive into a project, it's important to schedule this into the day.
Time blocking goes beyond just setting aside time for a project, but also involves silencing phones, forwarding calls to voicemail, closing emails and removing every type of distraction except your work. By using this technique, Trapani assures that the brain will be able to concentrate on the project at hand, allowing for the best work possible.
