I've had this quotation up on my bulletin board for a few months now. (Do you pin things up above your computer? I have two bulletin boards FULL of quotes and inspiration boards and garlands and pictures).
I see it every day. I read it most days. Have I REALLY let it sink in? Not so much.
Emily's post a few days ago on multitasking eminded me how far I am from this - this idea of focus. You see, I am SUCH a multitasker. I tend to take on a LOT and then work like crazy to get it all done.
But it isn't that efficient. I rotate between photoshop, illustrator, feedly, twitter, FB, gmail. Creating things, writing posts, responding to comments. Answering tweets.
Today is typical too - three loads of laundry plus a few errands. Shopping for a carpet for the living room, curtains for the bedroom and some wallpaper for the basement.
litting here and there and everywhere.
Time to focus.
