WAH Moments: Diversion

I have a short attention span. I need to have several things going on at every given period of time, otherwise I’ll go crazy over what I am doing for hours. If you are someone like me, you’d know what I am talking about.

Anyway, another advantage of working at home for me is that there are a lot of things that can divert my attention. TV shows, loud music, a neighbor popping in, a relative calling, a friend sending me a barrage of text messages, newspaper in the morning, a book that I can pick up anytime of the day… A 5-15 minutes diversion can do a world of good to someone like me who gets stuck in what I do if I just go at it for hours.

In a corporate set-up, you cannot simply walk away from your work to take breaks when you want to unless you are from upper management. There are coffee breaks, cigarette breaks and other in-between breaks one take. But can you really pick up a book and then read a chapter when you want to? :)

Happy Friday and have a great weekend everyone!
