Do you lose your attention even when something is of great importance to you?
Showers can be so boring. Like dead time. That’s why I turn the radio on and listen to the news. Except, half the time I get lost in the thoughts in my own head and only come to halfway through a story, wondering what the hell it’s all about.
Here’s another weird thing. The station I listen to always does the traffic report, an advertisement and then the weather. They always get the weather wrong, but that’s another story. The weather is very important to me because I ride my bike to work, and I really don’t like riding in the rain at night.
Anyway, I hear the traffic, and I pay attention even though I’m not interested because I know the weather is coming up. But the advertisement loses me, and I start thinking about…. whatever, and then when I come to, the weather report is almost over. I am very frustrated and wonder why this happens, over and over and over.
What up with that? Why do I lose it even though it’s important to me? Do you do anything like that on a regular basis? What is it?
