I get distracted so easily it boggles my mind.
I was walking into the living to get something, stubbed my toe and didn't remember what I was going to get for a good 20 minutes.
When I'm writing (or editing!) this happens ALL the time. My house gets cleaned, laundry gets folded and the floors even get mopped.
My friend said something the other day that hit home with me. Fear of succeeding. If you're always used to not doing what you want, the prospect of actually doing it is scary. At least for me. Like when I realized I had a shot at a 3.5 GPA. All I had to do was not flunk my finals. So I freaked out, even though I knew the material inside and out.
Like right now. I have to finish the boards today to meet my goal because I will not have time to work on them tomorrow. I could be done in an hour, but I keep doing other things. I rarely meet my writing goals. when I make them, I know it's more of a guideline. I'm making the decision today to stop letting myself get distracted. Why sabotage yourself? There's no point.
To stop some of the distractions I'm flipping the switch on my Toshiba that controls the wireless. No more distractions!
Hm. The bathroom needs to be cleaned...
^_^ Just kidding! My butt is staying right here until those boards are done!
