Whether you're a lab tech, a lab manager, or an engineer, when someone asks you for a report, it typically means completely switching gears. If you're working in Excel or another software program, and you're right in the middle of important work when the request comes in, you have to stop what you're doing, exit out of or minimize the window you're in, and switch to a new window to generate the report. That's certainly one way to break your concentration.
We have enough distractions to manage over the course of the day. Reporting doesn't have to be one of them.
