We don’t like people who seem not giving us the attention we demand. They look like so emotionless that’s why we to tend to think they’re snub, stoic and simply unfriendly. Though it might be true, it is also might be false and not bad after all. Perhaps they just protecting their time and it has something to do with their focus, priorities and productivity to actualize their goals.
Like what they said about multitasking, you can’t do all things at the same. Instead you switch focus instantly to prioritize one task at a time.This is the same with time management, if you allow people and things to affect what you do, then you allow them to steal your time and productivity. It has strings of negative effects in your overall performance in your job or career. According to Tim Ferris, the author of 4-hour Workweek, to cement your ‘edge,’ you have to clear with your priorities and defend them against outside forces.
