Why Should You Attend
Working from home you are nearly as likely to interrupt yourselves as to be interrupted by others. About 44 percent of interruptions are self-induced. These interruptions can break your train of thought and slow your work pace. While interruptions, distractions, and intrusions at home are inevitable, it doesn’t mean that they cannot be minimized or reduced. How you deal with interruptions and your strategies for handling them matters. The key to controlling interruptions is to know what they are and whether they are necessary and to plan for them.
