Lately I’ve been rather distracted at work. It seems that if I don’t have non-stop, thought-provoking work to keep me busy, I get involved in other things. Flipping around on webpages, reading my kindle for PC, working on Crazy Jay’s Christmas gifts, and, oh, yeah…writing and reading blog posts. There is a lot of work that I have let slide. The boring, tedious work that needs to be done on a daily basis, but that is not so important that it will matter too much if you miss a day. Or sixteen.
Today I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all I have to do. There is an air of stress and urgency in the office anyway, though none of it is directed towards me, or most of the work I do on a regular basis. I decided that I would create an affirmation to help me stay focused and get the maximum amount of work done. Once I’m finished writing this post, that is.
On a large post-it note placed on a prominent area on my desk I have written the following affirmation:
I stay focused and motivated. I am able to complete all the necessary tasks with ease.
Every time (again, after this!!) I feel my mind straying, or I start to feel overwhelmed, I am going to repeat this affirmation. I am quite sure today will be my most productive in a long time!
