This morning the rain hitting the windows is so loud it’s hard to focus. There’s a lot of flooding, so I’m thinking about the route I’ll take later and how much longer it’ll take to get where I need to go. I keep wanting to check the news to see if the waters are receding, despite reports of more storms.
Sometimes my to do list is off putting and/or daunting. I may need to do things I just don’t want to do. Distractions seem even more enticing then. How do you make yourself concentrate?
–reveling in the sense of accomplishment when you can check off each less than pleasant task. Isn’t that better than feeling bad about lack of productivity?
–knowing you’ve earned downtime. While everyone needs some relaxation, socializing and time away from computers, I believe feelancers should consider their income stream and bank balances before putting play before work instead of reassuring themselves they’ll work harder tomorrow.
Yes, as Scarlett says, “Tomorrow is another day.” But if you let distractions and lack of focus prevail today, what’s to stop them from defeating you tomorrow?
