I have this little placard on my table that reads,
"For him who has no concentration, there is no peace." - Bhagavad Gita
Peace has not been on my possessions list for sometime now. Sadly and painfully, I have come to realize that I have too much on my plate and that is leading to this current phase of indigestion. I have two first drafts that never went beyond that, non-fiction pieces calling for my attention, some children's fiction that I have been penning in-between along with a craving to draw on Adobe Illustrator using my new Wacom. Entwined with all this are my tuition classes, anthology submissions, erratic blogging and a never-ending reading list.
This see-sawing between tasks and flitting from one to another is not serving any purpose now. It is time to focus. I have promised myself to choose one pivotal task every month. Everything else will orbit it and only one of them (pre-determined!) will get my attention when I want a break or a change. Till I complete that pivotal task, none other will get it's spotlight.
Let's see how this goes.
