    I’ve been working on a personal project, or at least have been trying to. And due to Covid I think I have the time now to make it a reality, but the problem is I feel too distracted, or even if I get one task completed in the puzzle, I take way too much time to get back on working on another task.

    Sometimes I even call it a day which is making things very slow paced, so I wanted to know how you guys are staying refocused in your studies or working on something you need to put your personal hours in. Anything is appreciated.

    I have also trying tried snapping here and there my mind off of everything to get things done, but I feel like it’s not the healthiest way, I am also trying to get distractive things out of my way, but I feel like I need to be more self disciplined myself too as I still need to stay connected with the world. Have a great day.

    Dear Elie:

    To refocus on your work after being distracted and to remain focused, you will need:

    (1) to deal with the part of you that dissociates (“there’s always a part of me that disassociates with people and surroundings”, April 2021),

    (2) to express your deeper feelings and complications inside to someone who is not a family member as clearly as you can (“my own complications inside… deeper feelings beyond what people try to comfort me  by… the complications inside me haunt me”),

    (3) to be understood by that someone (“I.. feel like I’m not capable of being understood… I always wanted to feel understood but I  never got that”),

    (4) to manage your anxiety about your brother, and about others whom you love, so that you don’t worry too much, or break apart as a result of this anxiety (“I really do see him trying but slowly he’s breaking apart as well. And that just makes me break apart too… I’m more worried on the emotional states of myself and everyone I love”).

    I appreciate how you still recall my previous posts btw, and part of that is perhaps true. Even though I’m in a fairly better mental position than before, there are still long term complications too which I need to deal with.

    But I also think these problems are not instantly work through-able or that I still need to get my other things in life done before being able to solve more complicated things mentally step by step. It’s a weird dilemma I guess in some way.

    Dear Elie:

    Thank you. I didn’t recall your previous posts before I re-read them today though. After I posted to you today I thought to myself how funny it is that I listed 1, 2, 3, 4, as if they were easy to do, as if these were 4 household chores you can do in one day. So, I agree with you: “these problems are not instantly work through-able“.

    The “long term complications” will require a long-term plan to resolve bit by bit, and not all complications will be completely resolved- not in my experience with my own long-term complications.

    I still need to get my other things in life done before being able to solve more complicated things mentally step by step. It’s a weird dilemma“- you can start with making a simple plan every day: first thing in the morning, list the steps you intend to take that day, listing them in order of the 1st to do, the 2nd to do, etc.

    You can make a weekly list as well, where you highlight in yellow, let’s say, the steps to take in the following week that are of highest priority, highlight in green the steps of second priority, etc.

    Lack of focus is a frequent reason why a person cannot achieve what he wants, get rid of bad habits, advance in his career, make more money, and get his small affairs in order. This “affliction” often affects students and pupils who seek <span data-sheets-value=”{"1":2,"2":"help with coursework"}” data-sheets-userformat=”{"2":14385,"3":{"1":0,"3":1},"7":{"1":[{"1":2,"2":0,"5":{"1":2,"2":0}},{"1":0,"2":0,"3":3},{"1":1,"2":0,"4":1}]},"8":{"1":[{"1":2,"2":0,"5":{"1":2,"2":0}},{"1":0,"2":0,"3":3},{"1":1,"2":0,"4":1}]},"14":{"1":3,"3":1},"15":"Calibri","16":11}”>help with </span>coursework and other types of papers. But this is also a problem for adults. Here are some tips:

    • 1)Give up multitasking
    • 2)Use different time management techniques (choose the most comfortable for you)
    • 3)Start work on the project in the morning (when productivity is at its highest level)
    • 4)Keep the end goal in mind(visualize the result)
    • 5)Constantly feed your motivation (be inspired by the stories of people who have succeeded, use affirmations)

    Planning also helps a lot, and of course while working on the task to turn off all the gadgets)
