My day is much like the track of mini-race cars at the amusement park- stop and go, stop and go. Many interruptions and few dedicated blocks of time for "real" work. The solution: less is more. Less items on the to-do list and more moments of focused reflection. Less procrastination and more concentration.
The catch of course in all of this is obvious: if I'm trying to get my work done, is it still possible to form camaraderie with my colleagues?
