This question already has an answer here:
I work in an office area of ~450sqft. There are a total of 7 people working in the office. I've been finding it hard to concentrate on my work (writing code) because of the distractions going on around me. The distractions are both work-related and non-work-related conversations.
I'm trying to figure out what to do in this situation. I want to be part of the team, and I want to get my work done to the best of my ability. I can easily think of two options that I don't like:
- Stay where I am, not be able to concentrate and get less work done
- Move somewhere else. (This is tough because I code on a desktop, so I'm not very mobile.)
But what are other options? I'm going to talk this through with my team in the next couple days. Any advice or solutions would be great.
