MotivationWhen it comes to distractions, when you break off from a conversation to do something else, the other person or people involved frequently will find something else to do or another person to communicate with while they wait, in which case when you’re done, that person will be engaged completely in something else. You may be apt to check your phone or find something else to do while you wait. And then the other person sees you’re busy when they are free, and the pattern continues.
