    Wonderful advice. What I find interesting about time-blocking is my coworker’s responses when I tell them I am engaging in my type of time-blocking. When I tell my coworkers that, for me, being distracted is not efficient they typically get offended. It’s like they feel that I am talking about them being inefficient, not that I need to be more efficient. So in the end I am just secretive about it. Anyway, great stuff thanks!

    @HurricaneMitch: I experience the same thing. But that is because you tell them at the moment they actually are interrupting. If you let them know in advance that you are blocked from 10:00am until 11:30am (daily, or on a particular date) they’ll understand. It also works the other way around: by not interrupting you outside that particular time block, they won’t feel guilty about pulling you off your work.
