Do you ever find it hard to focus? I’m having one of those odd sort of days when I can’t seem to settle to anything. Thursday afternoons are normally set aside for working on new products and ideas. A time to plan ahead, be creative, organise thoughts and play with fabrics.
I look forward to Thursday afternoons all week. During busy periods Thursday afternoons are the first thing to go and over the last few weeks, for one reason or another, Thursday afternoons just haven’t happened. So I was really looking forward to this one. I’d been extra disciplined all week, this morning’s orders all went smoothly and were packed and ready to go by noon.
I sat down ready to really enjoy myself. Sketch book out, notes galore, music on, dog snoring gently in the corner of the studio. Especially eager to finally come up with a plan for one particular little embroidered sketch of an idea that I keep going back to.
So what did I achieve? Absolutely nothing. I’ve drifted from this to that. Struggling to concentrate, unable to focus. Frustrated with the time lost. I’m calling it a day, shaking off the cobwebs and heading out with the dog and reminding myself that Thursday will come right round again next week.
