Help! Lately, I feel like I can't find myself in everything I do. I lack focus and get distracted easily. Like today, I plan to write my article when I woke up so when it's time to publish, I already have my entry. But, there are a lot of chaos, noise, commotions in the surrounding. Since my aunt from Manila is here already, the other aunties and the kids, a lot of kids are also here to catch up.
Some would say just don't think of anything else that is unnecessary. Think of what's your goal and what you want to achieve. Well, this is right but this does not apply to everyone and cannot also be applied to all situations. No matter how we dedicate our time to accomplish something, still it cannot be done for the reason that there will be factors that hinder you for doing so. For instance, you are writing your article and you are really focused about it but then your mom ask you to buy something. Don't tell me you would just ignore your mom and pretend to not hear. Oh dear! You will finish the article for sure but it will be your last stay at home. For that reason, you will surely stop what you are writing and just do what your mom says. And when you come back, you can hardly connect your idea to what has been left. As a result, you stop writing and just do something else.
But, I really want to know how you maintain your focus. Perhaps it might work on me.
A lot. My little brother is number one. His cries occupy the whole house even if I already shut the door in my room. Still, I can hear him. This morning, he constantly asks for candies, marshmallows and chocolates to my mom. In the middle of his sweet munching, a portion/tiny bit of chocolate entered his decayed tooth which made him cry so hard. And then my mom would scold him and picked the bit of chocolate in his tooth using toothpick. When the pain is gone, my brother would eat again those sweet goodies and again, something would stuck in his teeth. The same cycle goes on!
Just to escape the noise, I go outside somewhere far from but not that far from home. Just few steps. I make myself comfortable under the shade of a tree. I was about to continue my article that was supposed to be published tonight but I was not able to do so. I decided to write another one which is this because I have not finished the other one.
Facebook is also one the distractions I want to get rid of but can't. I plan to uninstall my Facebook app but I will be fooling myself if I do that because I know, later on, I will install it back.
How does Facebook distract me? Well, it will all start when I hear the notification sound which means there's an update going on in my Facebook. I try not to close the read.cash page but later on, I will find myself on Facebook already watching racing videos and Mukbang. And when I realized that I need to finish my article, it's already evening and I haven't cleared my notifications yet. Oh boy! That's why most of my articles were published late at night. Good luck to my health.
The need to pee also hinders me to finish my article. I just can't prolong it for my health will be compromised. When I return from the comfort room, it feels like my ideas were flashed in the toilet too.
My neighbors laugh got me distracted as well. I have this neighbor whose laugh sounds like a witch, so creepy and loud. I can hear her because our house is just near from theirs.
I know I should get used to it since we are neighbors but no, I did not. I even told her once that if she's about to laugh, she should get inside their comfort room so no one hears her. It feels like my ideas run when I hear her laugh and before I knew, I can't catch my ideas for they are far already.
My laziness sometimes acts up which made me not write. I just don't feel like doing anything like Bruno Mars. I just want to lay in my bed. Watch Kissing Booth as everybody on Facebook keeps on posting about it which got me curious. I almost finish watching it and I think I need a new movie/series recommendation. Anyone?
Alright, let me end this as I don't want to keep it longer. Will be publishing the second part tomorrow.
