Switch off that distraction!

By Shi Tianyun

Guess what? The number one distraction in the office is not your co-worker who speaks at 70 decibels all the time or your boss who loves to stop by your cubicle to tell you all about his latest golf game. An informal survey of 500 corporate managers conducted by Natalie Gahrmann of N-R-G Coaching Associates revealed that the top distraction in the US workplace is technology. Communication technologies, like email and social media, are so time-consuming that it’s estimated that 28 per cent of the average person’s work day is spent on them.
