Dealing with distractions
is a fundamental rule to a successful project. Skype is a great way to get distracted. Following these options helps you to minimize Messenger distractions:
- Set your status to Busy - people will think twice before messaging you
- Don't display an alert when a contact comes online or goes offline
- Don't play a sound when you receive an email. Remember - you do need a sound when you receive an IM in case you're not looking at your PC when it arrives.
- Figure: minimize the Alerts you receive
If you run Outlook to manage email you should also
minimize Outlook distractions.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
