Attention Span

I clearly lack the normal attention span of 7 minutes normal human beings possess, in my case it takes me 2 mins or 3 mins maximum for my mind to wander in some weird wilderness.
However annoying this sounds but its true I'm pretty bad in paying attention.

Mostly it happens while attending the office meetings for some ultra-critical crisis, after 2 minutes of huffin puffin..I get lost.
And whatever I notedown on my writingpad seems a mountain to climb or just a cake-walk, and results in procrastination.

And the moment I leave the meeting room, I go blank, and after
settling on my desk I try to make sense of gibberish which I noted
down with sincerity of a third-umpire. After minutes of struggle, I decide to take a coffee break before further more deciphering the short forms I used during meeting, and checking of all mail accounts after every three minutes goes on without saying.

(for the record, this stands true only during official hours! Ok wifey)

hey..i feel your pain! Im exactly the same...which isnt very handy right now as Im meant to be sitting my final exams..
Anyways! Im trying to get around to as many Indian bloggers as I can, asking for their help so I'll stop there- I'm an Australian Indian doing a major work where I need heaps of surveys filled out, which is really hard for me considering I don't know many Indians living in India. So it would be really awesome if you had the time to visit my online survey and fill it out. Heres the site--

Thanks heaps!
