I wake up from an awesome night of sleep. It has been a stressful week on top of just having a lot of this to do. I am not complaining these are the expectations and responsibility that I agreed to.
I am going through my normal morning routine; check email, read, and look at social networks. One of the people I follow asks:
“Anyone in finance go through periods where you can’t focus? When a direct cause isn’t identifiable, what did you do to solve it?”
I believe that when you concentrate on too many thing you concentrate on nothing. When you try to do too much you do nothing. We have all been or seen the person who tries too hard to be funny or pick up a girl.
When I start to feel that way, happens a lot. I try to remember that, as well as knowing that it will eventually kill me. My goal is to accomplish something, not be busy.
Set time limits and measure what you do. I usually find that I am not accomplishing anything and inefficiently resting.
Sorry if this contains typos, I am sitting by the pool.
