My focus is broken.
I have no idea how many times I have said that sentence over the past several months. Then I looked around, and over time clutter had invaded my working space and there was nothing peaceful about sitting down to work. I had to crawl over boxes and zig zag around the room just to reach a computer. (Ok, it wasn't quite that bad, but near!)
I decided that to up my productivity I needed to clear it all out. A few hours of sweat, garbage bags, dusting and voila my working space was again there. Then I broke out a hammer and some nails and re-decorated so that when I look up lost in thought I am surrounded by serene pictures and objects. Those that energize me, while keeping me calm and allowing the creative juices to flow.
It could be that I am nearing the conclusion of a huge many months projects, or that I have several new endeavors on the foreground that motivated me to make the changes that I needed for productivity. Perhaps it was because I found myself fired up, clearing out the mental cob webs as I dusted.
