I get distracted easily and sometimes I have a hard time focusing on the right thing.
But as I was sucked down rabbit holes and wasting my time the other day, I realized that I don’t need to stop getting distracted.
Not getting distracted is not a good goal to have. Because I will get distracted. And then if my goal was to never get distracted, I feel guilty and miserable and I don’t want to do the right thing anymore.
A better goal is to come back as soon as I can after I get distracted. To learn how to refocus myself and remember the task at hand. To close out of the rabbit holes and go back to work.
I’m never going to be always focused. But when I find myself unfocused, I can let go of guilt and simply make the right choice in that moment.
