Then I come home and it’s as if they have been planning all day for me to arrive. I need this, can you drive me to my friends, I have a project due tomorrow, and can you fix this. After it’s all done I complete my other tasks at home.
Not complaining just stating a fact. There are really good distractions and bad ones. I enjoy the kids and love helping them, so most of their distractions are good. At work most of the time its good information to get and helping is my job. After saying that makes me wonder what are the bad ones? It really is the times you really need to complete something or really want rest.
I really don’t know if anyone can better manage distractions without shutting everyone out of their life. I think its best to just relax and know there will be some interruptions during the day and focus on them quickly to assist. If I really have something needing to be done I close my door and tell people I need to focus on this effort.
See something things that really bug you and I start out very upset with distractions, talking them out or writing them out truly helps solve the problem. It did not remove the distraction, but it feels better now that I thought about it.
Much Joy and Love to you and yours
