I can’t concentrate on something for more than 10 minutes at a time. Part of this is due to my chronic inability to sleep through the night, part of it due to my natural ADD tendencies…look, a shiny object!
I just finished sitting through a CreativeLIVE workshop with Zach and Jody Gray for three entire days and, trust me, as engaging as they were, it took every ounce of my ability to stay put and stay tuned in. I learned so much that I just want to grab my camera and get shooting before I forget anything, but I am in the middle of revamping my website, suping up my FB page and restructuring my business model for 2012, so I have to somehow find a way to balance all of those things and fit sufficient shooting time in as well. Easier said than done when I can’t sit down for more than a few minutes without suddenly jumping up to do something else- something completely irrelevant to what I should be doing.
I’ve tried setting a timer and concentrating until the timer goes off…didn’t work. I’ve tried locking myself in a room with my computer and NOTHING else to distract me…didn’t work. I’ve even tried standing with my computer on the counter and trying to keep my feet moving so the urge to be restless doesn’t overcome me and force me to get up and move around…no go!
It was getting to the point where I was feeling a tad crazy and wondering if I should just run for an hour to calm my restless everything, wishing that I could just slow down and focus on one thing at a time and BOOM! Nausea overcame me and I projectile vomited through my nose on the way to the bathroom. No, I am not pregnant…;)
Now I’m laying here, head spinning, mouth watering, wondering what the heck I caught and why it has chosen today – the busiest day I have this entire week – to overcome me.
Then I realized that now that I’m sick, I am forced to stay in one place and do very little because I feel so nauseous if I move around.
The Mind works in very mysterious ways.
Have a good Monday everyone. I wish you all enough…
