I can think of 10 things off the top of my head that I should be doing.
Blogging was not in the top five.
But it has been too long since I have written, as is usually the case. And I had promised myself that I would treat my writing with respect. So here I am.
I have been a scatter-brained procrastinator for a long, long time. I’ve written about it here before, in the many manifestations of this blog.
Are you sick and tired of it yet? I am. Well, I think I am. I can hear some motivational speaker in my head saying that I’m not sick enough or tired enough of it. Because if I was, I’d change something.
Well, I’m trying… …as I tap this out from my living-room office with train tracks serpentined on the floor at my feet, a dishwasher to unload, an oral surgeon to call, art projects to complete, laundry to sort, wash, and fold, carpet to clean…
It seems that the only time I can find my focus is between 1 and 4 am, but I can’t allow myself to do that when I need to be up by 7 to get kids to school. Not to mention that that oral surgeon doesn’t take calls at that time of morning.
I’m trying to focus though. One frog at a time.
What helps YOU focus?
