Recent research suggests that the typical office worker is interrupted or switches tasks, on average, every three minutes and five seconds. Once interrupted, it can take up to 23 minutes just to get back to where they left off. Studies have also shown that in the financial services industry, interruptions can lead to inefficiencies like momentum-loss and do-overs because of error and stress.

Time is money, and therefore a precious commodity that we cannot afford to waste. Thus, in order to stay focused and achieve our goals, it's important to learn how to manage barriers to staying focused.
