I had a realization the other day, I think I have work ADD. I was frustrated that I couldn’t put my hands on the information I needed to complete a task. I was constantly referring back to my inbox to find information I needed and with my Outlook open while I was working on the task, every time an email came in, what would I do? Well open it and read it of course although none of them had anything to do with the task I was striving to complete!
What is the problem here? Bottom line, my productivity was being sabotaged. As a result of: 1. Information Overload and 2. Constant Connectedness. The next two posts will address these issues separately by framing each issue and suggesting ways to deal with the problems.
But before these posts come, have you ever felt like you have work ADD because of these issues or others? What do you do to cope?
