Is there something that you knocks you out of a productive mindset at work sometimes? How do you deal with it and get back to work?
I find that checking a sports website when I haven't told myself I'm taking a break can throw me off. Before I click on any articles, I ask myself if it's worth taking a break now, versus one I planned to take later. If I was really moving along with something or there's an urgent matter to attend to, then I exit the window. If not, then I check an article or two, knowing that I won't be able to do it later. EDIT: We have an article on our site about the seven biggest time wasters at work. __________________ CAREEREALISM User Experience & Content Manager

I'm a CAREEREALISM Career Expert, and I get distracted quite often at work and home. My trick is to give myself the time for a break. If I'm productive for 2 hours straight than I might reward myself with a 15 minute Facebook break. Or, if I find myself reading the same paragraph a few times over then I'll get up and walk around to stimulate my senses. It's hard to work hours on end, so I set small milestones and then reward myself at each stage until I've completed the larger goal.
