How to Stop Anyone From Constantly Interrupting You – Including Your Boss

Interrupting is a bad habit that needs correction, but depending on the reason, or the degree of relationship, it needs to be handled differently.

And try writing some paragraphs with one sentence only.

I’ve divided this post into very small segments. Let’s see many people actually take the time to read this.
