Do not plan for ventures before finishing what’s at hand.
More and more, I’m feeling scattered, going off in fifty different directions with my attention span grower shorter each day with every new distraction.
Just like my computer desktop with so many tabs open, my mind also has too many tabs open.
Sometimes I find it a curse to be interested in so many different things as I find it hard to focus on one thing at a time and even worse, I find it hard to finish things. No wonder the house looks like a bomb went off with so many unfinished projects lying around, waiting for me to rescue them.
I have made the commitment to myself to do something creative every day. Now I am making a commitment to finishing something every day, even if it’s just a small project.
A “to do” list with priorities does seem to help as I can finish something and feel a sense of accomplishment as I do it.
The time has come to slow down and focus on one project at a time. Really focus on it instead of flitting back and forth looking at email or Facebook, or thinking about the housework to be done, or another project that I want to start.
My daily affirmation will be: Do one thing at a time with your undivided attention and finish it.
Look, I finished this blog post. That feels great!
