The phones are a distraction--what you just saw on the phone can also be.
--Put the smartphone in the desk during meetings.
--Turn off the computer screen if someone is your office.
--If you are talking to someone and someone sticks their head in, ask them to come back later.
--Set a time to call busy people.
A man who tried this said he felt like a better person. He saw his earlier distraction as lack of respect.
He even found this patience and these habits benefited him in his personal life.
You can ease into this--leave the phone behind for one meeting a week, then work up.
You can do it! You own it--don't reverse that.
