Do you ever find yourself getting distracted when you know you are supposed to be focusing on a task or a job?
It happens, and I think it happens to everyone at one time or another. For me, it is most likely the task. If it’s something I have little interest in, or I find it uninspiring, I do admit… I can wander. I might throw on a video, or suddenly find a urge to check on my little cat, who is usually curled up contently, nearby.
This being said, when I’m in the zone… when my creative juices are flowing or I’m on the edge of a breakthrough on a project – nothing can distract me. Not even Kitty!
My suggestion to you, should you find yourself easily distracted when you know you need to be working… take a break. Get up, walk away… perhaps do some stretching or better yet go for a quick walk. Even if all you do is push away from the computer for a few minutes, close your eyes and do some deep breathing… You will be better off! Now, drink a glass of water and get back to work!
