happens all the time. You sit down in
front of a screen to complete a task.
You open a browser to “check” something real quick. You follow a few links, then close the
browser to get back to work—only to be
looking at a still-empty screen. Not to

It is so
very easy to get sidetracked. Following
the e-mail trail starts this off course journey. You know the drill. You are working on a task and realize that

for just this one piece of information and …..distraction attack!
Until next time…
