    Working is quite hard sometimes. probably, we can;t find ways how to star it and if it happens to be started, there some interfering factors that leads us to quiting or postponing the tasks. What are the things that probably the cause of delay in accomplishing your task?

    I have to agree. Phone calls are always a way to get sidetracked.

    Perhaps, peer pressure to hangout for the younger generation can cause a delay in your work.

    However, it's different for the working professional.  Some of the instances are as follows:
    1. You can delay a certain task if your boss tells you to do something that is more urgent.
    2. When an employee goes into your room and asks for help.
    3. Phone call
    4. Emergency meetings in the office

    one of my cats likes to sit on my desk while I work.  Sometimes she likes to walk across my keyboard...that's a disturbance because I have to put her on the floor.  She is now sitting next to me, upright and sleeping.

    Having to run necessary errands for my wife--to get "stuff" from Sierra Vista, 40-50 round trip miles every time, plus however many stops at however many stores.  One trip approximately equals one blown workday.

    I do a lot of troubleshooting work and integration work with VoIP.  I get interrupted by somebody with a problem requiring help AT LEAST once an hour.  While in one aspect it derails my thought process and makes it hard to complete a task, it is also a good thing.  Training people under me to do my job will in turn just make my job easier, and allow me to expand further upwards and outwards with my knowledge.

    telemarketers...if only they did not exist I would not be disturbed and get a heck of alot more housework and crating done, instead of having to answer the phone for something stupid.

    My co-workers, I work in an office space of cubicles and my co-workers, mainly my boss just starts conversations across the room with whoever will listen....it's so annoying. I am known in the office for turning my back on people when they come up to me and I'm obviously engaged in a task, I turn around give you my attention for three minutes, and then I just turn around and give you my back. The not-so subtle cue= I'm done talking and now back to work.
