Day 26 Challenge: Driven to Distraction #31dbc

So, one of the things that I’ve been dealing with more since my journey began has been distraction. I already had issues with ADD and ‘shiny objects’ but it’s gotten worse, to the point where I now will stop, mid-task, and inquire within. What’s up? I’ll ask myself what’s going on? Why am I unable to concentrate? What do I need to deal with? Usually I can journal for a few minutes, clear it up, and move on.

This evening, while working on a task for a client, I stopped what I was doing and inquired within. Tears out of nowhere, mostly frustration at this seemingly never-ending process, and working on letting everything, everyone, every belief that does not serve me, go! It’s daunting but I feel like I’m near the end.

Once that was over, I was able to go back to what I was doing.

What do you do when you’re distracted? Got any tricks to share?

  1. I am so glad that I am not alone. I identify with you so much. While I am on a task I have used http://www.simplynoise.com. It is free and it has white, brown and pink noises that help with concentration and I find this helps me often. Sometimes I also have to use planners so that I know what all of my current projects are so I do not get as side tracked. After I complete a project I give myself various rewards and this helps me with completion.
