Changing My Ways: Battling Distraction To Complete Projects


Changing My Ways: Battling Distraction To Complete Projects

ISujeiry and A Ball of Yarn Like Catnip have a tendency to overbook, overextend, and overexcite myself. I walk past a yarn store and instantly desire to purchase a ball and play with it as if I were a kitten hopped up on catnip. Wouldn’t it be great to learn to knit? I ponder while stroking the soft threads. I could make my niece/goddaughter Nila a blanket for winter. I can create those pretty hats that vendors sell in Bryant Park. Oooh, maybe I can start a business and sell knitted clothing! And there goes my mind, plotting another venture though I have plenty of incomplete projects to tackle.

It is the story of this Aries’ life.

Now, at 33, I want to change my ways. If I don’t, my Love Trips book will remain unfinished, trapped on a USB instead of sitting on a display in Barnes and Nobles and laying in the hands of adamant readers. If I don’t, I will never film my mockumentary which I have talked about for two years. If I don’t, my business will be housed in my momma’s apartment forever and I will never profit from my hard (though at times inconsistent) work! This trend of enrolling in sewing classes and stripper classes and drooling on windows when I see balls of yarn must stop! It only serves as a distraction from what is really important: to succeed professionally and personally.

So I am buckling down.

With the little time that I have in my day, I really should focus on building the audience and the Sujeiry, 1st Lady of Love brand. And I’m not going to do it by playing with yarn like a kitten that’s hopped up on catnip. So I’m snapping out of it, Pepitas, but I will need your help. If you see me buying a piece of fabric or hear me speaking of scheduling a tango class, shake me as if I have nine lives. Don’t be afraid to shoot me with a tranquilizer gun either. Stop me from loosing focus by any means necessary!

Because distraction is my catnip and I am severely addicted.
