Dying Daily #27: Focus

I am having trouble making things sound the way I want them to this morning, I apologize ahead of time for awkward phrasings and uninspired writing.

I slept until 7:54 this morning. I cannot remember the last time I slept so late. I can acknowledge that I am sick now.

The fever is down this morning at least. The last two days seem like a dream in a lot of ways. It’s all a little hazy.

This is a good opportunity to look at focus. I think I try to do too much a lot of the time and end up accomplishing less than I would like. Today is a great time to address this since I am in danger of trying to hit the ground running and keeping myself from getting better.

I am going to do the things that are necessary today, and stop with that. I am going to try to be smarter about how I do things going forward. Work smarter, not harder I suppose.

As I’ve mentioned, I have two speaking engagements coming up, but I also have two conferences I am applying to. Rather than doing a bunch of new work on 4 new ideas, why not take what I already know and adapt it for each purpose? I will actually end up with a better product that way, and it is an opportunity to deepen my knowledge of something I work in all the time.

That’s it for me today. What are the things you need to be focusing on? What is getting in the way of you doing this?
