    No, it's not my age causing this problem.

    I've been like this for years. I get bored and lose my concentration. Some times it's embarrassing. I need a rewind App for my brain.

    I could be having a serious conversation

    and then I'll see a bird and I'll forget about what I was talking about and point out the bird, then I'll see it fly and wish that I could, then I'll think about flying, then I'll think about airplanes, and I'll think about how i went on an airplane before, then I'll think about...

    I can do up to 6 things at the same time. I can't only focus on one task. And that's why it takes me so long to finish things.

    but I just get distracted with other fun things, like EP. It's even worse when A pretty girl passes by, I just have to look. I've almost gotten into accidents and such just by "rubber necking". It sucks, you show me something shiny and I'm looking at that instead of what I'm...

    I’ve got this song written. In fact, no, currently I have about 89% of a song.  My upload has stalled. B’Jeeezus, you’d have thought it was Bohemian Rhapsody or something, not just a bloke banging an acoustic guitar and having a bit of a wail.  I thought I had it earlier...

    I am possibly the most easily distracted person

    I know. It has gotten to the point where I literally spent two hours trying to win at that "KILL THE BUG" advertisement. You probably don't even know what that it. I've asked my friends and they don't know, but then again, that's probably because they haven't ever spent two...

    Guy Winch, TED talk about emotional first aid.

    Rumination is a massive contributor to depression. Thinking deeply about negative things that happen in our lives, going over them over again and again. To break that, all it takes is a 2 minute distraction. It's that easy. But make it a good one, creative or looking at photo...
