Ironically, this week has been quite the opposite to the yearly custom of moving the clocks forward an hour to ‘gain’ time. I’ve been so busy over the last few weeks, that it’s become a habit to expect an email to drop in to my inbox at least once a day. An email of the exciting kind where you see it come in and then do something you dislike (such as making tomorrows lunchbox) just so you have something to look forward to.
Looking back there’s been a couple of good emails this week and in fact, now I come to think of it….that’s not the root of the problem.
I think it’s just an ‘exhausted brain’ week. I do believe one’s brain has taken a holiday and left an empty space to deal with my incoming notions until it returns, hopefully next week.
To put it into context, I’ve often sat down with the laptop, opened it up and stared continuously at my Twitter feed waiting for the thought process to engage and take me somewhere else….
I think most of us can relate to that ‘circle’ of sites that we tend to visit repetitively. Personally this consists of Gmail, Facebook and Twitter with maybe a StumbleUpon, if time is in my favour.
Creative frustration I call it.
To sum up, I’m there staring blankly at a computer screen, waiting for a brain command to act upon and waiting for that email to come in.
In order to get those emails coming in, I need to give my brain the command and engage with my brain to get the response. Effectively, these commands become ‘emails’ for my brain to deal with and since it has taken a holiday somewhere, I’m yet to receive a reply.
Well, it’s either a holiday or it’s making an extra big lunch box for tomorrow….
Thankfully, I’ve had my good friends ReAgent cover me over the last week and they’ve sent out a superb press release for the world to read. It’s been picked up by the likes of Yahoo and American Banking News and continues to spread the word about JTSA. Thanks!
