Inside the mind of an ADHD Cricket is usually a mess of complete chaos that no one but me is likely to understand, the non-stop chatter of my thoughts jumping all over the place (and back again) until I can focus.
How in the heck is there over 1000 emails in my inbox again? Good morning kitty cat, yes I see you. Where is my coffee? Dang! Were the spammers breeding over the holidays? Where is that phone ringing? Why on earth am I up this early. I should prolly check to see why that site is running slow. Did I pay the server fees? OUCH! If you bite me again I swear I am gonna pull all your teeth out!
What was I thinking when I ordered SouthernWench.com? No, don’t open Facebook yet, you will never get out of there. Where the HECK did I set my coffee down? Is she not getting my emails? Okay, I really need to sit down, focus and knock out these directory submissions right now. Did I forget to feed you? Ugggggh! Is it naptime yet? Oh yeah, my coffee. Crap! It’s cold…
Actually it’s not that I have trouble focusing, it’s more that my mind wants to focus on way too many things at a time. The results of that are never pretty.
So how do I ever get anything done?
The answer to what works (most of the time) for me often show within the pictures I choose to take. Have you ever noticed that I tend to shoot very close up, so that I am focused on ONE thing right in front of me?
That is exactly what I do when I am working. I remove as many distractions as possible so that the only thing I am seeing right in front of me is exactly what I need to be focused on.
Does it work?
Heck yeah! But like most things in life, it can be too much of a good thing.
The down side of this method (for me) is that I don’t tend to notice the laundry piling up or that I have been working on something so long that the sun is coming up before I have even gone to bed.
It may be time to work on balance, ya think? (grin)
P.S. A special shout out to all my friends who are participating in day three of the V7N 30 Day Blog Challenge. I know you can do it!
