I've had a ton of backed-up email that needed attention, reading, and answering. I haven't had much luck getting through it all, because in my office I'm constantly interrupted, and there are other distractions.
Finally this afternoon I pulled my laptop off the net, took it and a cup of coffee to our big basement conference room, and sat there with the lights off, so the only thing I could see was the screen of my laptop, and spent two hours answering all my outstanding email.
Ha. Take that, Mr. Attention Deficit!
