Working hard to reduce my “noise” at work. I have turned off my notifiers for email and other “software” so that I can focus on work and get things done. I have also started blocking out time as “busy” for the actual work to get done to avoid having things like meetings in the middle of things.
I have to now shift to managing expectations. There is a culture that email is urgent and now and I have to get those who write them to realize that I am not treating it that way. I also have to be some what compassionate to their needs of at least informing them of this shift.
Here’s to finding Zen at the workplace!
