Epiphany: I don't handle interrupts well

As I was considering a stupid mistake I made today, I verbalized something that I may have known, but never really thought about as significant: when I allow myself to be interrupted in something that I'm doing (either by someone else, or by my own realization that there's something else I need to do), I do a really bad job of actually picking up the thread of what I was doing before.  I spend a lot of my time in a state of stress because I'm always forgetting stuff, and I think that a very large chunk of these things are forgotten when I get interrupted.

I'm not sure if realizing this and thinking about it will actually help me do better, but it can't hurt to be aware of it.
