Yesterday was the slow-pitch softball approach to warding off distractions.

Today, we go major league.
  1. Dogs belong on the other side of the door. [Pick up a multi-pack of industrial strength earplugs. They’ll muffle out the plaintive canine cries for attention and/or the symphony of squeak toys your furry friends have pulled out of the closet.] I know, I know…noise-canceling headphones, but what’s the fun of those?

  2. Significant others? Make an appointment for lunch. Let’s get real here–they’re going to love an hour away from you.
  3. You’re granted one preset alarm–a midpoint reminder to blink and stretch.
  4. Restroom breaks–cordon off the path with crime scene tape or, better yet, electric fencing. No straying allowed. [Warning sign is optional.]electric-fence-1832491_1280

Need me to be your productivity cop? Airfare, lodging [I’ll even walk and feed the dogs.], $100 an hour. It’s a steal!
