Hi Fayaz Khalil! :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts, highly appreciate that!

I agree with you that there might be other ways to deal with that whole issue. E.g. I couldn’t ignore my phone if it was ringing but not muted. The whole point of “ignoring” in that case is to guard your time and don’t allow disruptions. The moment you respond to tell that you’re busy, you’re already out of flow.

However, as you said, if everyone would constantly ignore calls and emails, we’d end up in chaos. My goal with that piece was to create awareness about the fact that it’s always a decision whether we react to certain stimuli or not :)
