Like at work, I sometimes get interruptions of many different sorts. (For example, a meeting) Next, once I get the interruption over with, I usually have lost the momentum I had which was helping me by giving me the desire to work, and it's hard for me to get back into the groove of working again; I end up feeling like NOT working for the rest of the day, in other words. I think the same thing happens to football teams. When a football team falls behind, makes a drastic misque, or gets severely penalized, they sometimes kind of like need to get momentum back to play as good as they were before. Thank you.
Its Mike here again, hope all is well.
I too have had to battle with the loss of momentum, both in a larger sense in my business when I was injured, sick and when a close family member was in a really nasty accident a couple of years ago.The easiest thing for me is to actually get into a habit, a pattern. Execute this habit each and every time its time to get serious with work or whatever you are trying to focus onFor example if you look at every single high performance athlete, they always have a physical warm up preparation coupled with a mental preparation both before the tournament, game fight, etc.. AND before the specific event, play, round, whatever the case.I think you need to get yourself a checklist to re-establish your focus once you get pulled away. Whether it be a physical checklist, a mental checklist or a group of activities to physically almost train you to say "OK we are doing this group of activities, time to get back to work".
