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:
  1. Set your status to Busy - people will think twice before messaging you
  2. Don't display an alert when a contact comes online or goes offline
  3. ​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.
Minimize Skype distractions
Figure: minimize the Alerts you receive

If you run Outlook to manage email you should also minimize Outlook distractions.​
