This is how I get distracted:
I have ONE PURPOSE when I get on the laptop. I need to check how many people are attending a meeting tonight so I decide whether to cancel or not.
First mistake, I open my email and get distracted by the Google alert that a suspicious activity occurred and tried to get into my email (on Google that I rarely use but have a business listing). So I take care of that, then I notice that my business listing is out of date. Update that. Then I can add photos. ooooh! So I add photos. Then I update the hours and have to move a couple of things in photo folders so they’re ‘right’.
Then I check my Facebook. No, I’m supposed to be checking the event page. Check the event page and then copy and paste the event to the main meeting page as a reminder that there’s a meeting tonight.
FedEx arrives with the wine shipment for an event in a couple of weeks. Do I open it? Do I put it away? Do I get on the website and answer the survey?
What about the drapery pole and drapes that need to be hung? Should I start that now?
Did I look for the hook for the chicken coop? Do they need food?
Then I check my Facebook page again. And get into a discussion about a poll response (you know who you are – ha ha).
And I still have only had one cup of coffee. And I have laundry to finish, dishes to unload, bags to sort through…
