Beware the rabbit hole

By | 2021-01-26

As I write this, a lot earlier in the day for a change, I realized that I actually sat down to write it 45 minutes ago. I feel down the rabbit hole.

It wasn’t one thing in particular, instead of jumping write to the editor I checked an open tab, clicked a link, then another, read a post, a news article, watched a video and then spied the clock – where had the time gone?

Just like that almost an hour of productive time was gone and I’ll now need to make up some lost ground elsewhere in my day (likely tomorrow). It’s something we all do, most of the time without realizing it. We can stop it, we just need to acknowledge the first step, we’re way to easily distracted.

Acknowledging the problem is the first step, now we just need to figure out a solution.
