I disagree. I have been very productive lately and it is due to the fact that I haven't been spending a lot of time thinking about what I needed to do.
But before I say more about that - here is my breakfast:
|Spinach and turkey scramble with 1/2 an English muffin.|
The English muffin looked lonely without any jam:
So, I dug this out of the fridge -
|Raspberry and rhubarb jam.|
|Tea and an orange rounded out the meal.|
So, back to my topic of the day. I suppose being focused works for some people but for me it would send me into a hyper aware feedback loop. That cycle ends with me getting nothing done because I thought about it too much and end up paralyzed by too much information.
At the moment I am approaching work by seeing it as just something I get done each day - like brushing my teeth.
This tact has resulted in lots of cooking, lots of writing and daily gym visits. A rousing success in my opinion.
So if you are anything like me - you should give it a shot.
Being productive while not focusing - I think it is a good thing.
