I thought today I give you a look into my hyperactive brain 😉
Whilst I am typing this blog post I am watching a movie on my laptop, run a Market Samurai research and have several browser tabs open. One to moderate incoming comments on my blog, others to research some more topics I want to write about in the near future. And from time to time I am giving computer help to my hubby that shares the same office with me. That is completely normal for me and without this setup I couldn’t work at all!
When I was a child, my mother always told me off for not concentrating properly on my homework and doing other things alongside it. She never understood that my homework and learning actually became worse when the music was turned off and I was not allowed to write an essay and read a completely unrelated book at the same time.
I even used to read a book whilst walking home from school, but I kicked the habit after some near accidents 😉 Coming to books and reading, I read 3-4 times faster then the average person and read always several books parallel. Am I normal? And what has this whole Hyperactive disorder thing to do with blogging?
Yes, I consider myself normal, as normal as you, and you and you over there, are normal as well. Everybody functions in slightly different ways and some are more peculiar then others. So how do this hyperactive disorder or hyperactive brain actually affects my blogging?
First it is great for gathering information as I able to read fast and listen at the same time. So that I can take in a lot of information in a short time.
Second it is bad when I actually want to start writing my blog post, I get easily distracted by what I am typing and tempted to do just a bit more of research or to explore a related keywords. That is the reason why I am listening (via head phones) to a movie whilst typing.
It keeps me distracted enough to be able to focus on this blog post. Does that make sense? 😉
What peculiarity do you have? How does it affect your blogging and how do you adjust / cope with it?
