“Distract Me Not”

By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.”                       ~ Christopher Columbus~

Okay so I am making an effort to be continually productive but I admit that along this path of trying to remain continually productive I seem to get consistently distracted.  For me it doesn’t take much to distract me.  Life distracts me.  Love, when it is having its hiccups, distracts me.  Motherhood distracts me.  Occasional depression distracts me.  When I am in a good mood and everything, or almost everything, is going my way then I am good to go.  I am inventive.  I am creative.  I am resilient.  I am determined.  I am driven.  I am productive.  When shit gets me down and puts me in a depressing mood, I get thrown off.  My thing from here on out is that I must maintain my productivity or else I will get stuck.  My problem is that life seems to get in my way a lot, which ends up being distracting.  How do I see through the distraction is what I then have to deal with.

There is no real way of knowing when something is about to go wrong or when someone is about to disappoint you or anger you.  In short, there is no full proof way to avoid getting distracted.  There is, however, ways to try and assure that you quickly make your way through the distraction.  I think that some ways that you can see through the distraction is to keep your end goal in your mind.  You can’t let yourself get so down or so busy with other things that you forget what you really want in the end.  My struggle is going to be to separate my personal life and tribulations from the business and career side of my goals and what I want to do in life.  Distraction is something that can constantly get in someone’s way but only if you continue to let it.  Until next time….Be Blessed!!!
