It all began with a suitcase…..
I started down the stairs to get a suitcase.
On the way I saw a scrape on the wall.
I drove to the hardware store to buy paint.
On the way, I passed the bakery and stopped for one of their delicious caramel rolls.
As I was eating the caramel roll, I felt a filling come loose.
I picked up my phone to make a dental appointment and saw a notice from a friend who was having a party.
I didn’t want to show up empty handed so I stopped for a bottle of wine.
You get the picture. Whatever happened to the suitcase?
How does one stay focused on the original task? It’s like pulling on a noodle in a plate of spaghetti, you pull one side and the other side moves.
Don’t misunderstand. Everything I accomplished was good, but it all distracted me from my original goal of getting a suitcase.
In short, stay focused on the task at hand and don’t end up in Nepal shaving that yak!
