There I am working diligently at my smallish, cluttered work space. I am forcing myself to concentrate, and it is difficult. I lose track of what I was doing and stare intently at the screen in a trance.
I snap out of it, realizing that daylight’s a’wasting and I have things to do. Serious things. Work things.
What can help me through this, bring my mind back to where it needs to be? Music! Something with a beat. Something bouncy. Something that will not distract me from what I am doing. I always find music to help when I am struggling with something difficult.
And that will be the song I bust out at random intervals throughout the day along with my slick dance moves that are surprisingly similar to J-Bieb’s during Luda’s breakdown.
‘Cuz I was all “Baby, baby, baby, YEAH!” Those ARE the only words I know, after all.
And that is how I sometimes help myself focus. That and coffee.
