Lack of Focus
It reached nearly 80F (26.7C) here today and I spent the entire afternoon in my home office on a few conference calls. Board to death by the contents and participants on the second call, my mind started to run away from the subject at hand. Then, my eyes followed my mind and moved from the legal documents in front of me to my computer screen. My hands soon followed. Low and behold, blipfoto was infront of me. So, I commented and viewed and, then, got into a blipping blip mood. My camera was on my desk as were a set of fresh flowers which my wife purchased a few days ago. The phone was turned to mute, the macro lens was screwed into place and a harsh halogen desk lamp was used to illuminate the subject.
Blip, blip, blip........My mind drifted even further from the blah, blah on the speaker phone........blip, blip, blip.......and then I heard a question out of no where come my way from my client: "Giacomo, what do you think of this provision in the agreement?"
Oh shit, what provision? "Um, um, um.....well, before I answer that question I would like to hear what you think of it first so that I do not bias your opinion". As he answered the question, I breathed an immense sigh of relief........hah!, my startegy worked. I picked up on the question at hand, gave my opinion and........
Blip, blip,blip......crop........insert SD card into notebook.......post my 83rd journal entry.
Then, back to work.
Have a great weekend and Saint Pat Day
