We all have trouble focusing every now and then, but if you are a creative person, you might notice it more than others. We are easily distracted, and sometimes when we get an idea about something we want to run with it right then while the inspiration is high, but that can cause us to lose focus on the tasks we originally set out to accomplish for the day. It’s a constant push and pull, or at least it is for me. However, it’s important to know how to focus and concentrate to get the job done when you have a deadline.
Sometimes when I am able to get into the focusing zone, I’m shocked by the number of things I am able to accomplish by the end of the day. If I could only learn how to stay in that space of concentration more often, I’m sure I could get even more done.
