Was wondering...

Do any of you struggle with keeping on task at work? I've noticed that it's hard for me to adequately gauge the amount of time it takes to do anything.
Another thing I've noticed if that if someone is giving me a lot of information verbally it's very hard to process. Unless I write it down I lose at least half of it. I have a boss who expects us to multitask and keep on top of a lot of details, and it's a real struggle to keep up.
If I have to monitor several things at once, that's where my weaknesses start to show up, and it makes me look incompetent or lazy.

I find if I am processing large orders at work, - sometimes up to 5 large boxes at a time - (which involves unpacking & checking off stock, pricing & shelving it & recording & faxing invoices) I have to do it at a careful pace or I will get in a muddle, whereas my co-worker (who I am sure is a Hunter) will literally hunt it down, kill it & be done with it in half the time... I remember to take into a/c that she has been there a lot longer but I'm sure its more than that...

Wow Ribbit - some journey eh??

Yes!

Quoted from newtypeA
I've noticed that it's hard for me to adequately gauge the amount of time it takes to do anything.

I always under-estimate.  Seems like I used to be able to complete tasks more quickly, but my concentration is not as good as it once was.

I have a hard time concentrating and have become very absent-minded.  I will go to do something and then stand there (in front of the closet, or pantry, or wherever), saying to myself..."what am I doing here again?"

#1)  I believe this is partially due to my hormone situation.

#2)  I also believe it is because of so much time spent on the internet.  It has corroded my ability to keep my train of thought.  DH swears that working on a computer for so many years (he is in IT) has given him ADD.  There may really be something to that.

I don't know what inability to concentrate has to do with being a non-secretor, though.     I notice not many secretors have responded to your poll, but of those who have all say "time flies".

Looking back on what I shared on this thread, I am relieved & delighted to reflect, that my ability to concentrate has increased dramatically & the lack of brain fog is comparatively remarkable!! Maybe it was less than from just being a nonnie?
In addition to avoiding black dots & avoids, I think for me being aware of & avoiding exposure to sulphites, any exposure to scents/fumes from petrol, perfumes & oil burners etc has helped enormously

I was wondering....is it possible to put an entry like "and time flies while you move slowly???"

This always happens during research. Suddenly, I've been in the house ALL DAY without leaving. (But trying to make myself feel guilty enough to get up and go.)

I must keep busy to have time fly. So, even if I don't feel like it, I tell myself to get, up, to commit to complete something, and then before I know it, the time has flown by!I'm not sure I believe it's a nonny thing, It's how I have learned from past experience.


I love dogs and turtles, bird watching, canoeing, cooking for friends and family, knitting, reading, and DR. D's diets!

I think time flies for almost everyone unless you're depressed or something.
