jeremylk7 saidAnyone here scatter brained? Like unable to focus on just one task at a time. I find myself unable to get almost anything done that I'd like to because I get so many thoughts at once so I just do the easiest ones to somehow get relief.
Anyone else like this?
The information processing dynamic you use is usually the result of growing up in a reality that demanded, for survival purposes, that many things be paid attention to at once. The possible results of you not being aware of your surroundings or environment could have had very bad results for you or those you cared about. Ultimately, this form of information processing leads to burn out or exhaustion because of the overwhelming amount of data that the average human brain has to process just in the course of a day. If you are seeking a different way of processing information in your daily life, you may want to try what's called isolation processing. Specifically speaking, what you want to try to do, on a regular basis is focus in one specific task in your day that seems to be small and/or insignificant. Ideally it should be a task that relaxes you or makes you feel somewhat at ease. Make yourself do that one little task every day, regardless of whatever else may be happening around you. You have the power to set the time of day when you will complete this task (may be when you are at home alone in your room) but try to make sure that you do it, everyday, at the same time, regardless. This is a suggestion only and in no way is suggested as an answer to your problem. I hope that it might help you though. Good luck.
