focus

click the thumbnails to test your focus …

when I focus,
not much is disturbing

when i am tired and try to focus
— perhaps I concentrated for too long,
perhaps I didn’t sleep enough —
monotonous sounds are not disturbing,

however …

pitch changing
drilling machines
or mixers,
close by
are quite disturbing
and take away some,
even a lot of the focus

but the worst disturbance
is the human voice:
the mental mind
automatically
focusses
on it

when tired,
a human voice
will completely destroy
all focus

when tired,
your ramsay meter is high
and patience might be short lived

perhaps i should
create the habit
to stop the focus
for a little while
when focus is
so easily
destroyed

    • yes and no. yes, being taken out of concentration has a bad impact. no, those who contribute to flow get treated well … πŸ™‚ There are people in the world with whom working together is like doing things 4 times faster … but they are quite rare too.

  1. Hi Bert !!! I loved this fascinating, interesting, interactive exercise. It was truly very much my noticing “focus” and I tend to stray to “blurred” and when forced to really sharpen on one of the images, I found my “old” eyes are rebelling. LOL
