    The irony of ironies is that the last place you can get any work done...is work! Take it home, come in early, no email Mondays...all half-assed attempts to stymie the flow of interruptions and distractions...which apparently occur every 7-mins on average from your collection of digital devices.

    Psychologists state it takes 15-mins to get to a deep focus.

    IF 2+2=4, then...YOU NEVER GET TO FOCUS ON CRITICAL TASKS AT WORK.

    How a Co-Working Space Can Transform Downtown Los Angeles via magazine.good.is

    a problem shared...from basement solitude to co-working milieu, is not necessarily a problem halved. The trend for co-working in open collaborative spaces, is in many experts opinion, a recipe for more social engagement (which is great), and infinite levels of noise, distractions and interruptions (which is definitely not).

    Cannuck company CanFocus (nice alliteration!) is developing a physical and digital devices distraction management system, simultaneously putting on hold for a limited period of time all emails, texts, IM's and calls when you absolutely need to focus on work. www.canfocus.com

    Its kinda neat, take a look. I have a mate who works there, and rumor has it they are going kickstarter in Sept for a Christmas product roll-out.
