This isn’t an individual strategy. It’s an agreed upon office practice where everyone sets up how it will be implemented. Minimum rules of thumb for successful time locking policies are:

• Every worker has to time lock for at least one hour a day.
• Supervisors cannot interrupt workers during time lock, and indeed, must pledge to limit their interactions with subordinates in general.
• Everyone gets time lock training, including how to respect it and how to cover for employees while they are in time lock.
• And last, employees receive bonuses for increasing their productivity in time lock.
