I recently participated in a joint blog on the subject of keeping your focus while you work.
As with most creative people, this can sometimes be a problem for me because there are always so many interesting things to do and so many great ideas to pursue.

Overcoming “The Blur” As a creative person who is easily distracted I sometimes get overwhelmed with little details and my focus goes out the window. I call it The Blur – when whatever I had to do becomes a blur. My trick to overcoming it is to pick one thing to work on and and give it a time limit. For example, “I will work on this book cover design for thirty minutes only”, or “just until 3:00 o’clock”. When I’ve finished with the time limit I can do something else if I want to. Often by then I have re-focused.
