Close Your Door, And Other Ways to Minimize Interruptions

Recruiter The Creative Group surveyed 500 advertising and marketing executives to find out what’s causing the most interruptions to their work throughout the day. The answer: Co-workers popping their heads into your office.

More than a quarter (27 percent) of respondents said these impromptu stopping bys are the biggest distraction. So shut the door, put up a sign, or hang some curtains if you’re sitting in one of those fishbowl-style office spaces. Whatever you do, find a way to (nicely) tell your colleagues to check back later because you’re busy.
