    I can't focus on anything. Why?

    I buy lots of books.But hardly read those.I tend to write a lot(I have more than 6 blogs). But I don't have even ten posts in each.Once I bought a set of fabric colors and stencils. But when I grab a Tee to paint, I was struck. (It doesn't mean I don't know to draw or write. I can do it well. I love reading too). I couldn't figure out what my problem is. Anybody else having the same issue?

    Sometimes we all get stuck and life seems to be moving slowly. This is the time to forget about everything you've been doing and reflect on the past, the present and the future.
    It's normal and it would soon go.

    cheer up!

    While I cannot possibly know why you cannot focus on anything, I might suggest a solution.  I have a major problem (!) with time management, I am consistently unable to do what I want to do or what I need to do.  It is frustrating.

    One of the suggestions is to "Let it all go" and not to think that you have to focus.  The more you concentrate on the word "focus", the less you are able to do it.

    Another suggestion, that worked for me - keep a diary and write in a free-floating manner.  No need to organize your thoughts - just simple "put pen to paper" and produce three pages every day, even if the only thing you can write is "I cannot write. I cannot write. I cannot write. ...."

    Give yourself smaller tasks, but complete them.  Or make records, how much you can accomplish before you lose your focus or concentration.

    In any case, before you or somebody else can come up with the strategy to solve your problem, you have to gather enough data to describe your problem (or opportunity).

    As ironic as it sounds you need to focus in order to solve  your "focus" problem.  I am sure you will be fine.

    All the best,

    I wouldn't worry about it.. I get stages like that.. you've either got too much energy or a lack of it.. Find out which it is.

    You're probably an A type personality that loves to hustle, so sitting down on your butt for over an hour doing one thing is torture for you.

    Don't feel bad I have this problem all the time. Most of the time for me though I get distracted like crazy, usually because of my 3 yr old son. I just kinda go with it. I try to at least finish one thing before I go to bed.
