I’ve always had a really hard time with keeping on the same task for too long. I don’t think that I’m particularly ADD/ADHD, because it’s not a short-term problem. But in everything I do, I tend to start to wander after a certain period of time.
At work, I master the task at hand and I get bored with the repetitiveness (that’s a word, right?) of it.
With my hobbies, I have the same problem. I always seem to come back to writing, but I wander off track to other things.
Turning writing into a business has, however, tempered some of that. With the knowledge that I need to have product available for people to buy it has kept me on task much longer than usual.
So how do you keep on task?
