I need meditation!!!
Yesterday, I thought I would prepare today’s post ahead of time and see if I could schedule it to post automatically. If you read this blog every day, you will have noticed I failed. I had 2 posts yesterday.
I had no problem with the writing. I actual had a topic ready and it was easily written. But, once I had proofread it several times and pronounced good, I hit the publish button.
That’s pretty typical of how things go for me anymore. I so amuse myself because of it (yes, I’m easily amused). I amuse my husband with my “antics” also.
This is one of the main reasons I feel the need to get back to meditation. It gives me a sense of calm. With that, I feel more organized and focused. Focus just has gone out of focus for me. I fall in line with Classy Rose’s statement about being disorganized.
When focused, everything goes faster and easier for me. I can concentrate on one thing at a time instead of my brain flitting here and there. Lately, I will be working on a task, think of something else, go do that something else, and forget about the task I was originally working on.
As scuba man puts it: I pour a glass of milk, start doing something else because I thought about it just now, and a half hour later I will be asking him where I left my milk. It usually cracks him up. Me…not so much. My milk has gotten warm!
I usually don’t have this problem at work, but then again, writing code takes a lot of focus anyway. It’s hard to lose focus when you have 1,000 lines of code on the computer screen right in front of you and it’s your only task.
I sometimes think the best way to stay more focused at home is to set a schedule of what I want to accomplish on this day, complete with times of when to start and how long it should take.
How do you stay focused? Can you offer me some advice?
