Jan. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- There's a statistic in the business world that claims that something interrupts or distracts the average office worker every three minutes. With an average of 480 minutes in the workday, that’s approximately 160 interruptions throughout the day. The Productivity Pro, AKA Laura Stack, has penned a feature piece on how to stop the interruptions and the “gotta minutes” and focus on work-related tasks. The article can be found here:

“People are distracted by well-meaning co-workers, office gossip, and even customers who refuse to request meetings or schedule phone calls. You can’t prevent them from occurring occasionally, but it’s a concern when they happen too often. When profit margins are impacted, it’s time for companies and employees to take action,” said Stack.

Stack’s latest piece focuses on ways to better communicate availability and delegate tasks. One of the examples includes how to politely disengage with someone during a deadline or another inconvenient time, including talking while ushering someone to the door.

“Socialization is a part of work, but there is a time and a place for it. I think this piece will help people better manage what they say, need, and how they operate when it comes to meeting deadlines or allowing conversations to get away from them and eat up all their work time, which can add to stress in the workplace,” finished Stack.

Members of the media are invited to submit a story request to Laura Stack about this subject, and other matters of productivity, by contacting her media relations team at
