Distractions Are Everywhere

I would like to think that I’m a disciplined person but that’s only true some of the time. Much of the time, I’m a magnet for distractions.

My mind can be determined to do one thing but easily get sidetracked and end up doing something entirely different. This could be a curse or a blessing depending on how I look at it.

On the one hand, I don’t get the things I want to get done. That’s not good. But on the other hand, my distractions usually manifests itself in forms of thoughts, daydreaming if you will.

It’s during these dreamy moments that thoughts I’ve never had before appear. Most are pointless and uninspiring but some can lead to a new perspective on life.

Getting distracted is quite easy for me, especially when what I’m supposed to be doing is boring and mundane. I would like to think most people are the same way but I really have no way of knowing unless I go and ask but before I can do something like that, my mind is off thinking about something else.

Sometimes, I get in a zone. Pure focus. Things get done, things on the to-do list gets checked off, life moves forward as planned.

Other times, I get distracted and end up having a bad day. But hey, no matter how bad, there’s always something good like what this quote says:

In a world where technology is constantly advancing, more and more gadgets gets introduced and embedded into everyday life. From social media to games, the amount of potentially distracting things are getting quite high.

I don’t even remember the last time I was out and didn’t see at least a handful of people staring down at their cellphones. I’m sure some are doing something productive but I know many aren’t.

Being surrounded by lots of external stimulus all the time can seem to make one become easily unfocused. Just writing this blog post is started to make my mind wonder and since I’m started to not make much sense, I think it’s a good time to stop.
