Concentrate Despite the Clutter - Interruption Management

Years ago, I attended Sam Horn's session on concentration -- still great advice to this day in the face of too many potential interruptions!

* Concentration defined: voluntarily focused attention.
* Discipline of ignoring irrelevant matters
* Fixing ones' powers, efforts and attention
* Most people work best under a deadline; when their concentration is focused.
* Fatigue is a big road block to concentration

This last note is telling!:
* Society is moving towards a lower frustration tolerance with less discipline, and more need for immediate gratification. These are detriments to concentration.
