The Focus Complex

My world said that if I don’t focus properly, I won’t achieve my objective.

What did they mean by, properly?

Was it to process detailed knowledge along a specific line in order to gain strength, while, also, maintaining STRICT behaviour to keep the activation alive and steady?

Yet of the times I did try and stay focused, I was far from contained. In most cases, I’d hear the sound of a clock ticking louder and louder as if something annoying tore straight thru and entered my makeshift zone.

And they weren’t in actual steady ticks, as I know in a small quiet room with one hanging above.

Instead, this noise was electrified chatter or static as a buggy type of commentary carrying on.

Damn! I now had these uninvited guests who kept picking at me and questioning my stay. From one idea to the next, something kept challenging my every move to stay focussed! So naturally, I got impatient/antsy which weakened the fence even more.

For example, my usual noise would consist of things like

Border Patrol & Outpost Noise Report

1) Ok, how long have I got left here? 2) I’m bored and this sux! Hrm, I wonder what such and such is doing right now. And 3) If only I did things differently, earlier! Etc.

Also, an overflow from influences in the days or weeks before, say, from a Tv show, a news event, a social dilemma, or a dream product/service, these could all drift in making the hole much, much bigger.

Once punctured, that was it. Anything else could easily slip in and destroy my ability to MAINTAIN FOCUS.
