As for the distraction-proof time, I personally like to intentionally interrupt my coding at least once per hour. It often helped me with getting perspective and figuring out yet better solutions. Of course I'm not talking about going to meetings, but rather for a tea/coffe, maybe chat with someone.

P.S. I don't know how you do it Lorenzo, but it's always a great pleasure to read your articles! Even sometimes I feel like "this subject is not so interesting to me", I go and read first few sentences, because I know if you wrote it, it's worth reading. And then I realize I just finished whole article :) I was never disappointed. You have great skill of talking about things with easy language, yet very accurate and valuable! I really appreciate this.

P.P.S. The best solutions for really difficult problems I came up during the evening shower, or in the bed. Sometimes taking break for longer time, having some relax can really help. This effect is not new though. It was mentioned in numerous scientific articles.
