1. Smartphones. No surprise here. After all, the average person in the U.S. views their phone 52 times a day. And, it’s easy to understand why. We’re bombarded throughout the day with emails, texts, social media notifications, and phone calls.
2. Emails. We send out a lot of emails. How many? Well, in 2017 a staggering 269 billion emails were sent daily worldwide. That email figure is expected to jump to around 333 billion in 2019.
3. Background noise. Take a moment and really listen to all of the noise going on in an office. People are talking, machines running, phones ringing, and doors opening/closing.
4. People interruptions. Like background noise, interruptions from employees, customers, suppliers, and family are unavoidable. Engineers on Quora identified, “shoulder tapping," as one of their most common distractions.
5. Clutter. While in small doses a little clutter can encourage a creative mind, the fact is that a messy workplace affects your ability to focus and process information.
6. Multi-tasking. I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of juggling too many tasks at once. You’re a successful entrepreneur -- why can’t you juggle multiple responsibilities at once?
7. Co-workers. Conversing with your employees, colleagues, and business partners are all essential for building a friendly and collaborative company culture.
8. Micro-management. Although you should know what’s going on with your business, being a helicopter boss isn’t just a distraction for your team. They also find it frustrating, unnerving and anxiety-producing.
9. Hunger. It’s almost impossible to focus when your stomach is growling. Unfortunately, we satisfy this craving with junk food because it’s quick and readily available.
10. Needlessly strict policies. “When it comes to culture, a lot of employers like to enforce a set of policies to encourage employees to arrive on time,” wrote Andre Lovie in a previous Entrepreneur article.

1. Let people know exactly when you are available. Allocate a few time blocks during your day for communication, and let everyone know that this is when they can call you or message you.
2. Turn on Do Not Disturb Mode. You may be using a DND mode for your sleeping hours already, but why not leverage the benefits of it for your working time as well?
3. Turn off notifications from social apps. Out of all apps I’ve ever had, Facebook has the most distracting notification system. It spams you with everything that happens related to your profile, making you jump back to the app again and again until you get lost scrolling through the feed.
4. Put your cell phone away. According to psychiatrists, your cortisol level is constantly elevated when your cell phone is in your sight. The permanent feeling of anticipation and the indicator blinking in your field of vision both make your body want to grab and check your phone to make sure everything is alright.

1. Noise. Remember that open office configuration that you fought so hard for? It seemed like a great idea at the time, the perfect way to increase collaboration, stimulate new ideas, and de-emphasize hierarchy in your organization.
2. Smartphones. They’re a blessing and a curse. Smartphones have enabled us to be more connected than we’ve ever been, freed us to work on the go, and made getting lost a thing of the past.
3. Multitasking. We all think we can do it. We take calls while we work on spreadsheets. We read articles while we write them. We surreptitiously order lunch while we’re in an important staff meeting.
4. Interruptions. Another consequence of open office layouts is the propensity for team members to interrupt each other to ask basic questions. This “shoulder tapping” is actually one of the most common distractions identified by engineers on Quora.
5. Clutter. If you work at a messy desk, you have a couple things working against you. That’s because your brain is wired to react to its surroundings. A cluttered workspace will result in a cluttered mind.
6. Hunger. When it comes to performance, you’d be hard pressed to find something more impactful than nutrition. And we’re not talking about athletic performance.
7. Anxiety. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders are the most common form of mental illness in the U.S., affecting an estimated 40 million adults in the United States.
8. Attention Span. A Canadian study made headlines worldwide by concluding that modern human beings now have shorter attention spans than goldfish – thanks, of course, to our smartphone addictions.
9. Email. For a lot of us, checking email is the first thing we do in the morning. We answer high priority requests, respond to questions, browse articles from the various mailing lists to which we subscribe, and delete junk mail.
10. Slack. Some of you might be surprised to see Slack on this list. Email – sure that makes sense. But didn’t Slack solve email? Not exactly. Slack is the enterprise level chat app that has been touted over the last few years as a veritable email killer.

1. Chatty Co-Workers. Building relationships with your team and your colleagues at work is essential. Daily conversations are important for building a friendly, collaborative culture and atmosphere within the office, but it’s easy to get trapped in endless conversations and gossip.
2. Office Noise. Research by Kim and de Dear at the University of Sydney revealed that 30 per cent of workers in cubicles and around 25 per cent in partition-less offices were unhappy with noise levels at work.
3. Email Consumption. According to Tim Ferriss, we need t: “limit email consumption and production. This is the greatest single interruption in the modern world.”
4. Smartphone Usage (And Other Devices) Continually looking at your phone interrupts work flow and focus. Advertising. According to recent research from Deloitte, the average person checks his or her smartphone 47 times a day.
5. Social Media. How much time do you spend on social media at work? Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest… The list of apps and websites that come together to claim so much of our attention is nearly endless.
6. Meetings. During a busy week, the last thing a leader or manager wants is a wasted hour or two sat in an unproductive meeting. If I asked you what the most efficient way to be inefficient would be, I’m sure many of you would say “bad meetings.”
7. Multitasking. We all have to multi-task on occasion, but the less we do it the better. Multi-tasking reduces productivity and creativity. In an article for the Harvard Business Review, Peter Bregman notes that our productivity goes down by 40% when we attempt to focus on several things at once..
