I have an addictive personality. I don’t mean that I have a predilection to taking drugs, or drinking or gambling, but I am prone to falling into and compulsively keeping up with my routines. I really need to be careful with pacing myself in my personal and work habits. A lot of people have a lack of initiative and concentration when it comes to the humdrum of work. On the other hand, I tend to get so focused on my work, that I tend to forget that there is anything other than my work. It isn’t even that I make a huge amount of money on my job, or I would have a reason for allowing it to consume me. I work from home, and from the time I get out of bed until I am returning to bed, I am thinking and performing work. I don’t even want to go out of the house. This year, I allowed my husband to talk me into taking a weekend away. I took my computer with me so I could do some work, but he put it back in the house. A long time ago, I realized that I needed to be verging on being cold in order to be productive. I have the thermostat to our air conditioning, turned so low, that my husband wears a sweater all of the time. Without the colder temperatures, I become distracted easily, but the cooling helps me to stay focused. I guess it is good to get away, and I’m glad my computer wasn’t here, because the HVAC system in the room didn’t work well enough for me to accomplish anything.
