Distractions


I mentioned in a post last week that I have had some major procrastination issues at work lately. I've narrowed it down to more than just mere procrastination. I've decided that I am overly distracted.

First of all, I am constantly thinking about POTS and how to beat it. I do random web searches at least 3-4 times a week. Always hoping that something new will be out there and a great cure will have been found.

I am also distracted by all of the media around me. Email...books...blogs...websites...I can't get enough of them and when I want to do them, I very hard time focusing on my work. I've decided that over the last few years this has caused me to have ADD. There is nothing wrong with multi-tasking, but I swear if I try to do it too much more, my brain is going to explode.

Then there is the never ending list of things I want to get done at home. When I am at work, all I can think about is getting those things done...but do they ever done when I am at home...of course not!

Then of course JH is a huge distraction. I love everything JH. I feel like it gives me purpose outside of my family (if that makes any sense?). So, when I find so much joy in something, I want to be doing it all the time. Couldn't this be something I could get paid to do. I think it would be a perfect fit.

Anyways, all of these things haunt my thoughts night and day. So, when I have work to do, it usually gets put on the back burner. And then, in the 11th hour, when I have no other choice, I have to bust my butt and work crazy, wack hours just to get all done. And then the cycle starts back over.

I sure hope one of you can relate to this and I am not just going crazy out here on my own deserted island.

Yes, I can absolutely relate. I have days where I do one thing at a time and I then work to outsource some of my tasks to keep my sanity. I've also gotten really good at saying NO.
