The way to deal with an interruption is to deal with it and then return to where you were on the list. Any action resulting from the interruption which doesn’t need to be done immediately should be entered onto the list in the normal way.
Excessive interruptions are not a matter of time management, but of organisation. If you are finding that interruptions are getting seriously in the way of your work then spend some time investigating the causes of the interruptions and finding ways of preventing them or dealing with them more efficiently.
