I focus on doing what I need to do.
I tend to be a bit “scatter-brained” most of the time. I don’t mean to be. It’s something I have struggled with all of my life. I guess nowadays this inability to focus on one thing is known as ADD. I even had a psychologist from my past who told me that that I have ADD. I didn’t get put on medication and I will not take any medication now.
I think this tendency arises from being so interested in so many different things that it is hard for me to focus on just one thing. It also arises out of my loss of interest in something after I start it. I’m great with beginning things. It’s ending them that is the problem. I have many unfinished projects just sitting around waiting for my attention. I feel guilty for the clutter that has accumulated from these projects.
So, it’s time to clean up the clutter from these neglected projects. But, before I do I need to focus on what I need to do and get that done first. When I do that first, I feel a little better about what I still want to do.
If you are like me and you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the stuff that needs to be done and all the stuff that you want to do, try taking this first step. Then go forward from there.
