During my month of Single Tasking Experiments I will tackle one concept a week. For the first 7 days it will be all about Email vs. Phone. Do you check email when you are talking with someone? I try not to, but I certainly do. And I know that I give the occasional "yes" or "uh huh" during the conversation. Not exactly the pillar of listening and responding.
So, for this week it will be one or the other. If I am on the phone there will be no device checking and if I am working I will decide if answering the phone is a good idea at that moment. Either way it will be singly focused.
I'll check in throughout the week to see how well I am doing.
