With ADD, some days are worse than others. I’m honestly at my best when I have something to hyperfocus on, but that isn’t very common at work. I’ve trained myself to not hyperfocus on personal endeavors while at work, so I’m usually easily distractable. Some days, like today, I can’t even seem to keep a single thought in my head.
Usually even when I don’t hyperfocus on personal endeavors, I still have them in the back of my head. I do research on them– my usual distraction is ‘research’. It might be as trivial as reading forums, or google searching… something.
Today is just wretched. I’m staring off into space for minutes at a time trying to figure out what I’m supposed to be doing. I’ve resorted to an extremely detailed task list… if the tasks are too broad, I get distracted by trying to figure out how to get started and then I forget what I’m doing.
My head just feels empty. I don’t really have an strong personal endeavors currently. I’m not obsessed by FFXI (although I’m still playing it), ILoveBees has to wait until I get home lest I spoil myself, I’m not writing anything, I’m mostly waiting on other players for Nobilis PBEM…. I’m just aimless. It’s funny how it makes it even harder to do normal things.
