Why can’t I focus? I mean really, why?
I have a list of tasks, many big, many incredibly small things that could be knocked out with a phone call between walking from home to the shop. Many of the phone calls give me anxiety. Looking at my to-do list, many times I just stare at it blankly.
Many would say it has to do with devices. I am guilty of being on my phone and laptop a lot.
However, I think only recently (maybe the last couple years or so), I’ve begun to realize this is something I’ve always struggled with. It was there in high school and college with homework, long before I ever had a cell phone.
Certainly there is a lot I want to accomplish. It is just a matter of fact that I can’t get it all done? That there will always be things unattended too or unaccomplished? For years I’ve stripped out things that take time and energy from wanting to produce and put things into the orld, thinking I could get more done and focus easier.
If I didn’t care about all these extra things and just worked an 8 to 5, would it be an issue? Would it free my mind in the evening because I’m not always on?
Truthfully, I feel I all the time I need. It’s focus that I don’t have, and anxiety that I do. I feel if I could only find a solution for this one thing, I could write a book (e.g. Hometown Invasion Tour).
I’ve never had an answer. I just fear I have a life that’s being half-lived.
Fuel more Sunrises
There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
