I find myself constantly getting frustrated when I sit down to study, write, or research information and end up on a social media site. My phone is the DEVIL. At least it is for me a this time in my life.
I sit down to concentrate and with my phone just fingertips away I pick it up whenever it vibrates. I have banished it for most hours of the day only to feel completely lost without Black Twitter. I live for Black Twitter, it is my news feed but it is the DEVIL. I live to read the sharp witty minds that post all day. How do they manage? Is there a secret to it? Are they just better multi-taskers? Ugghhhhh its not fair! I can’t get shit done reading Black Twitter and trying to think of snarky shit to put on Black Twitter. Its all about the re-tweet.
I banned myself from Facebook over a year ago and didn’t miss it but slowly I have tiptoed over that line again. Its not as good as Black Twitter though. I feel the majority of my Facebook friends are just too fluff. Do you know not ONE of my friends were interested in the story over the weekend about the douchebag haters who protested a mosque in Phoenix? Maybe because I am of Muslim faith it hit me as personal but the fact that white men can protest with big ass guns, Texas style, and not one police shooting blows my damn mind. So why do I let this distract me from real work? I don’t know.
I feel every month at a certain point I have to drag myself back to the vision I want to create for myself. Every day I have to wake up with a plan on how to begin and end my day. Maybe, soon I won’t be bothered by distractions and I will be able to write a book, open a business, AND type snarky shit on Twitter that gets crazy re-tweets but for now I can’t. I can only log in for one hour a day…one hour that feels like ten minutes.
When I sit down to work I want to walk away productive. I keep telling myself: STAY FOCUS, GIRL! STAY FOCUS!
Currently I am working on a few things that I will be sharing soon:
- My crack at a killer business plan
- A short story
- Getting my Real Estate license. Finished the classes and I’m dreading the test
- Networking reviews
I’m trying my best to post five days a week. Again, I have to drag myself back to the table and re-focus but I am working. I’m working hard.
