I haven’t been on a regular schedule for weeks now due to the holiday season. In these past few days one thing I have found is that it is easier to concentrate when you can’t see all the other things that need to be done around the house.
I’ve been visiting friends and I get up before they do. I don’t want to wake them so I refrain from turning on the television. It is amazing what I can get done without it. All it takes is watching one show and the day is magically gone.
These things make me wonder if I don’t need to rethink where I have my home office. At the moment I have it in the public area of the house. This isn’t bad most days but where do you work when company comes? I’m going to move it to a room with a door. Now let’s see if I can stay focused with all my sewing projects around me. Looks like they may have to find a new room to settle into.
Being away from all the distractions at home has taught me that I can do those things that need to be done if I am able to concentrate on the tasks at hand. It has also shown me that if I follow whatever schedule I have set up I can get a lot accomplished in a shorter amount of time. Believe it or not this leaves me time left over to do fun activities without that nagging cloud telling me to get back to work.
