Today was not a good day for getting anything complicated done. Or anything easy, if it took more than 30 seconds. I’m sure it would have been different if anything had been interesting or on my list of things I want to do. The music from Pirates of the Caribbean (the film score, not “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life For Me)”) was going through my brain (just that one snippet – dum dum de-de-dum-dum de-de-dum-dum de-de-dum), and I think that was part of the problem. Maybe if it were longer, I could have focused for longer on one thing. Instead, I’d get to the end of that one bar, decide I must be done with whatever I was doing, and move on to the next thing. Except I WASN’T done, and then I didn’t get through the next thing, either, and wouldn’t it be nice if I could just go home and read my book? I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t have had trouble focusing on my book.
On the other hand, I had plenty of bite-size tasks, and today was the perfect day to get those done.
