Crazy at work? It may just be office ADD

Well I can state, that I experience some of the items discussed in the article. I have known that every email, phone call, instant message, or knock on the door put me back, but I did not realize how far or how much impact those items can have on us.

"What's more, when people do finally start working again, they
don't reach their earlier level of concentration for 10 additional minutes.
Total time that can be lost answering just one e-mail: a half hour, and that's
the best case scenario. "Every e-mail interruption is like a hand grenade being
thrown in the middle of your brain," says Dr. Hallowell."

This is an interesting article on too many distractions.
