I Admit a Focus Problem

I’m focused man. Okay, not really, not all the time. I have to admit that I have a focusing problem. What exactly does that mean? Hmmm, well, I can focus on a task at hand. I can focus on a detailed plan. I can focus on an issue. Unfortunately, I cannot really focus in general terms which I why I must have a plan or a list or something at all times. Plans, lists, to-do’s or whatever help keep me going in one direction. Without it, I would be scattered all over the place because there is just so much to be done. I get myself into all sorts of little projects or come up with new little things to occupy my time.

I am pretty sure that is why nursing school is kicking my butt right now. It literally sucks up most of my time, and I cannot really get into any of the little projects that I enjoy working on. My to-do list is going completely unchecked and it is making me crazy. Really, completing nursing school should be at the top of my list; but who want to wait a whole year to check something off?

With that said, I thought I would highlight some cool articles on staying focused. Now this was one of the first search results that came up and I can see why. The other items that came up, in my opinion, were to generalized and a little bit lah-lah-landish. This one is focused (lol), specific and targeted to different areas. By far, one of the most informative articles on line about staying focused.

Wrote a song about it. Like to hear it? Here it goes:
