I received an email recently from a reader that read:
I am just starting my business and I work by myself.
Sometimes I can go all day focused. Sometimes I can go only go for hours. But when I lose my focus, I am done for the day. I cannot get it back.
I can sympathize with this person because I have been there, done that…it was called yesterday. OK, just kidding. Yesterday was actually an exceptionally focused day. But I have gone through it often.
Distractions and depressions are a normal part of a productive person’s life. Someone recently asked: The first thing you have to do is realize that this is normal.
