There are too many distractions. Whenever I start to do something, I am pulled in other directions by irrelevant intrusions. Perhaps this is normal and it is the way things are with most people finding it a challenge to finish even the simplest of tasks. Perhaps I am unusual and my threshold for interruptions is set too low. Yet I have been told I have an uncanny ability to focus on things and block out external stimuli. So where does the truth lay? Maybe it varies according to some variable such as blood sugar or the phase of the moon.
