I’m really, really bad at focusing, except when I really, really, need to. And at that point I get VERY focused. It gets gnarly.
When you’re working full time, have a kick-arse girlfriend, are running a sustainable snowboarding company, and getting a new site/venture off the ground, as well as running photos, snowboarding, surfing, travelling and playing with your family, as well as smashing out bike races – it can get hard to focus once you add email and a heap of Google Reader things to read.
So, I’m always on the lookout for things that will focus me, or make me much more productive.
