Focus, people. FOCUS.

Recently I realized that I am a giant spaz.

And that is never going to change.

BUT, I have noticed that part of my ever-so-charming spazziness is because I do not focus on any one thing at one time.

Part of this is low-level ADD. Part of it is the dreaded (and I’m thinking permanent) mama brain. And then a big part of it is my complete and just FABULOUS ๐Ÿ˜‰ lack of focus.

In life, in business, in whatever, I seem to have none of the focus.

And I know that because I do not always get the results I want.

But I do notice that when I focus and clearly focus on one thing at a time, I get results! And usually pretty positive ones.

For most of my life I think I have shunned away from ‘focus’ because I have mistaken it with constraint or something akin to hard-core discipline in which fun has no place.

And at the same time I have watched the things I desire pass on by.

While it is true that I am a SAHM and one of my children is very young (so I’ve given myself a pass for a bit), I still have (cue the music) hopes, dreams, goals, and things I am determined to make happen.

When I realized that I am ALL OVER THE PLACE most of the time, I sat down and thought about what I wanted to focus on.

Family – Business – Health

They were a bit more specific but that’s the gist.

So I am beginning to break my day down into chunks of time where I only focus on one specific thing. If you are a mom, you know that multi-tasking is where it is at, so of course there are times I am doing more than one thing at a time but for the most part, I am breaking things down so I can be more productive and more FOCUSED.

So far (it’s been a week LOL) results are good. I am less flustered and, well, more focused. Therefore I am feeling better in general and getting more done.

It is my hope (!) that at some point I can be in the flow a little bit more and naturally focus and be in the moment without trying or feeling like I have to schedule everything. But I am so out of focus, I need to bring in a lil discipline and planning.

Are you focused or all over the place? Do you think laser-like focus is important or do like being a little more flexible and free?

What do you find works and where do you fail miserably?

Tell me!

Now off to focus on a nap. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. well, sheesh. This describes me exactly. My brain is all over the place, but when I’m focused (which I have to force myself to be), them I’m unstoppable. We must be a pair of geniuses. I propose that this “issue” you and I have is merely a genius-type trait.
