On Interruptions

Don’t allow yourself to be driven by interruptions. Graham notes that Type-B procrastinators are“interrupt-driven.” Don’t allow yourself to be driven by interruptions, and do what you can to avoid helping people who are driven by interruptions encroach upon your time and attention. This is really, really, really hard, especially for people who are especially social. Fundamentally (and fortunately), the degree to which you allow yourself to be interrupted is your choice and yours alone. Choose not to subject yourself to an unending stream of interruptions.
