Ask DN: What are you doing in a big office to keep being productive?

over 4 years ago from , kreativgebiet.com

I just saw the BusyBlocker used by Dropbox and I keept wondering what other people do to get more or keep being productive. Especially in a somewhat larger office or with funny co-workers lol.

When I need my time for being productive I am just putting on my Headphones and keep working without getting disturbed (sometimes muting Slack helps).

I am excited to hear your thoughts about this.

    Three things:

    • I keep myself signed out of Slack (but I'll get an email if there are any DMs, or someone mentions my name – and then I jump on).
    • If I'm really busy I close my email, and just duck into it every hour or so.
    • I try to change desks every so often. I find that I'm instantly motivated in new surroundings, and it breaks bad habits I developed at my old desk.
