I was telling a friend over the weekend how I had a lot of personal work that I needed to do, but how I seemed to lack the time and space at home to do it. I mentioned that I was considering checking into a hotel for a weekend so that I could get it all done.
My friend burst out in deafening laughter.
- Hehn? You have definitely hit the rock bottom of excuses. If you have so much money to waste, please come and invest in my company.
I protested that I really needed to focus on my work and how I couldn't do it at home.
- Come on, Ore! You just need to be more disciplined.
As I mulled over that startlingly simple but incisive piece of advice, he was still chortling away.
- Check into a hotel indeed!!
Why does it seem sometimes that my focus and discipline comes in ebbs and flows? When I tell people that I really think I would love to be a lady of luxury and do nothing all day, they tell me that I'd be bored out of my mind. But I think I can manage enough focus and discipline to do a good job of that.
