konzeptraum16710dTotally agree with this, man. Any concentration or deep work flies out of the window the second a notification bleeps. It got so bad for me at one point that every time I heard that bleep I had a Pavlovian response to it and was instantly feeling angry and overwhelmed. There is something fundamentally terrible about instant communication in an environment that requires long bouts of concentrated effort.

Nanos343310dReminds me of my telephone, always got the answerphone on.
Or the doorbell, which has an off button, I only turn it on when I'm expecting someone !
I am reminded though, that some emails in my pending tray, have been there so many years, the person I was going to reply to has since died..
Well, you've got to prioritise, or you never get anything important done !
thatDude769dThey send you an email. If you don't reply in 2 minutes, they'll chat you. If chat doesn't get through immediately, call the guy with phone. If he doesen't answer, go to his home office peep through the windows. If the guy is still hiding, suck yourself through the mail slot. Finally find the guy from a dark closet and go "ah there you are !!! hey I sent you this email, did you read it??!!"
