It’s 12:30 am on November 9th. The final results are still rolling in, but at this moment it seems like we – as a country – may have just elected Donald Trump as President of the United States. I did not vote for, nor did I want, Donald Trump as President. Further, I did not want a Republican controlled House of Representatives or a Red Senate. With the possibility of a Trump Presidency, I admit that I feel a little nauseous.
In previous elections, I may not have agreed with the politics of the other candidate. But at least I had some faith that the other candidate was not going to ruin our great nation.
I often find that I have trouble staying focused. Focus is a challenge for anyone, but it can get especially troublesome for creative minds. Your brain desires stimulation constantly, otherwise you find yourself sidetracked. You’ll procrastinate, fail to complete tasks and as time passes you lose all efficiency. In this article, I’d like to introduce you to a number of things that have helped me to maintain focus on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
