Modern work requires attention – constant alerts steal it

The modern workspace is full of distractions, with chat programs, email inboxes, and project management apps constantly throwing notifications our way. Inefficiencies caused by interruptions and multitasking can lead to stress, anxiety, and decreased productivity. To combat this, individuals need to regain control of their attention by implementing cultural and technological solutions to reduce notifications, such as right-to-disconnect legislation, timeboxing, and better collaboration practices. By prioritizing individual focus and attention, companies can increase productivity and foster creative problem-solving through the use of tools such as Stack Overflow and other productivity applications.
