Accept the interruption factor and “work” around it. It’s going to be impossible, lots of times, to start a 90 minute task and complete it in 90 minutes. Three hours later You’re enraged, exhausted, deflated. Decide now whether You’re operating in increments or fragments. For me, appreciating the difference has been a consistent challenge.

When I’m on top of my game, or at least in my game and present, increments make perfect sense, falling together logically and precisely. When I feel fragmented, and realize I’ve actually articulated the word in my thoughts, I realize eventually, that I’ve spun myself out of my game and that I’m NOT present.

Self awareness can be so cool, and so not cool, so invigorating, and so devastating. I’ve decided it’s all part of the fun.
