Miller recommended the following tips on how to make the most of office disruptions:
- Make a list. Advanced planning is the number one way to prevent stress. If you struggle with maintaining focus, experts agree it’s important to start every day with a clear agenda. Take into account what time of day is most productive for you and schedule tasks accordingly.
- Create an open-door policy. People who tend to ask others for their input tend to be more productive. Being in the company of people who think differently from you creates “Eureka!” moments, so occasionally being interrupted by others could lead to “disruptive innovation.”
