PM had a bad habit of breaking me out of my zone so I had a talk about what that means.

I explained the idea behind how interruptions can cost productivity. He seemed to get it, or so thought. Said he'd message me as to not break the zone. Good good!

He messages me with a question, then walks over to ask if the message broke my zone.

    Good for you for trying to convey a very real issue to your PM. An issue which is often underestimated by non-devs.

    I read somewhere that with each single distraction, a developer loses 20-40 minutes of productive work.
