Scattered

Well scatterbrained is more like it.

Lately I've been having a hard time focusing. I've got eleventy million things racing around in my head. I come up with an idea and its the most brilliantest idea ever. I embrace that idea with full force until the next most brilliantest idea comes along.

And lately these ideas have been coming fast and furious. They all sound great. Any one of them would be something worth pursuing but I clearly don't have the time to be doing eleventy million things at once.

I've been trying to come up with a path. Where do I want my life to go? What do I want to be when (and if) I grow up. And my brain has been working overdrive on this. I could start a new blog/magazine with one idea which I've been thinking about for a while. I could write a book with a newer idea. I could ... I could ... I could ...

But if I can't focus on just one thing, I won't get anything done. And I'll just sit where I am swimming in the worlds greatest ideas wishing that I could pursue them.

I need a big bottle of Focusin* and a focus group to help me focus in on where to go next.

*A big shout out in the next post if anyone gets this reference.

Maybe a support group as opposed to a focus group? I think there are a lot of us right there with you...

ooohhh I hate that when that happens....I get into those modes sometimes myself and just wish someone would just say, slow down and pick one thing and just do it...

Having the same problem myself, I call it stay at home syndrom. Honestly, even if it is a coffee or free seminar - get out and visit people that will take about anything BUT parenting and kids. Take an art class or something. I have been working on this very hard the last 6 months. Seriously.

When I get this way I start a list, if I didnt' I wouldn't be able to sleep. After a couple of days I go back and review everything. What makes sense and is 'doable' gets done, the rest gets tossed.

I hear ya! And I change my mind a lot, so that doesn't help either.

The focusin....that's not Stepbrother is it? Or some Will Ferrell comedy?

Heidi said...

That would be Stepbrothers, not Stepbrother.

Focusin...wasn't that in a Simpsons episode?

Whenever I'm overwhelmed by a million things going on in my head, I always forget people's names. So embarassing...
