Interruptions

focussed on readingRain stops play, our baby is crying, the other daughter wants something, the phone rings, someone pops over for a chat, we get distracted by something on the internet in one of its various forms.

We could get so much more done if we weren’t being interrupted all the time. Sometimes it’s outside our control and often it’s our own fault.

I’ve heard it said that one of the main things which prevents us from getting on with, and achieving things is a lack of discipline to stay focussed and being interrupted must be one of the main things which prevents us from focussing.

We need to increase our stamina for staying focussed. In our world of distractions, let’s remember to focus on the person we’re engaging with, the task we’re doing, the book we’re reading or simply the thought we are having.
