‘I’m sat in a garage waiting for my car to be serviced. I’ve brought all kinds of things with me and a great long list of things to do. Lots of distractions, canned music and can I focus?! Yes the atmosphere isn’t ideal but neither am I trying very hard. Maybe my list is a bit overwhelming too.’
I am feeling…..Demotivated / Distracted / Time wasting
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Efficient / Focussed / Productive
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
Am I expecting too much of myself in these conditions?
How can I make the most of my waiting time?
What is realistic here?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Look at the list of things you brought to do and work out which item is realistic.
Don’t be too hard on yourself in these situations.
Reading or listening to an audio isn’t to complicated; anything involving intricate brain work is probably not possible; brainstorming in a notepad is usually easy to manage.
