Do you ever have trouble concentrating on something? I know I do. Especially when I’m waiting for news.
I had a great job interview on Monday and I can’t wait to hear the news about it. I know the interview went very well, but I haven’t heard whether I’ve gotten the job yet or not, and consequently I’m having some trouble concentrating.
Why does this happen? Where did my focus go?
I can’t help but wonder what’s happening in the unfocused time. It feels as if new neurons are firing, creating new synapses in my brain—and it’s hard work.
I’m not on the same path I was, but not quite on a new one yet either. So my brain is taking the road less travelled, and it appears to be uphill—at least as far as concentrating is concerned.
It’s frustrating because I’m very goal oriented and I like getting things done.
I suppose I’ll have to accept my unfocused brain and do other things until it passes. For some reason, doing laundry, exercising, walking the dog, doing the groceries, reading a novel are all doable. Even writing this blog about my lack of concentration is going okay.
I’ve heard patience is a virtue, but this is trying my patience.
Concentration please come back soon.
