On the Importance of Focus
I have a list of “easy” or “filler” activities I can do when I’ve used all my focus capacities so that I still feel like I am achieving something/getting something done.
Haha I’m not sure what to make of this! Are they distractions or are they just like “switching arms” so to speak?
Good point. Here’s a rather long example of what I’m talking about…if the goal is “to write,” I often reach a point where I can no longer focus on writing. When this happens l often read/support other blogs as a way to attract a larger audience to my own blog (and writing). Instead of setting a separate goal of “to read other blogs,” which would distract my focus from the main goal of “to write,” I just see reading other blogs as a break; a search for inspiration that ultimately assists my own writing. Arguably this could turn into procrastination but it still has purpose…because no matter how good of a writer I am if I cannot attract an audience that’s a problem. Reading other blogs is an easy/filler activity, but playing with the dog and exercise are good too…I think you get what I am trying to say by now 🙂
haha that makes a lot of sense — it’s actually very clever. Instead of just looping and wallowing in the inertia of your own resistance, you have circumvented the problem completely! So many people want to bash their head against the wall to break through instead of just walking around it! Good for you for finding a way to stay efficient despite a block! 🙂
