Thank you all for your responses.
I’m in a little bit of a unique situation in that 1) I’m self-employed (great that I get to make the rules, just need to figure out what rules work best for me); 2) most calls or emails require a large chunk of time; and 3) my work is creative in nature so stopping to think about a different project(s) breaks my spell. It’s the getting back into the zone once that happens that I’m having trouble with.
I think the 3x/day checking of voicemail & texts could work, and emails only at the end of the day. I could let clients known that they can notify me via text if an email requires immediate attention. Texts seem less of an interference than emails… maybe because they’re smaller??
