You Can’t Think More Complex Than Interruptions Allow

Talking to a friend about meditating, after I said something, he made me repeat it so he could write it down. He told me to post it. Here it is:

If you get interrupted every nine minutes, you can’t come up with an idea complex enough to require ten minutes uninterrupted thinking.

In other words:

If you get interrupted every nine minutes, you’ll never come up with an idea that takes ten minutes thought.

I may have posted the concept to this blog before, but it bears repeating. This concept applied to writing my book:

Six periods of writing ten minutes each doesn’t equal an hour of writing.

I have to get into the right mindset, which may take twenty minutes. In that case.
