I Am A Work in Progress

10 Jan

This week is our church’s annual prayer and fasting.  I’ve been a Christian for a long time but this is my first time to join this church-wide event.

I admit I entered the fast with a proud heart.  I was blind. I thought I could do it alone.  I was like: “yeah, I could do this!  I will be disciplined and committed to this fast!”  I was also thinking of the material blessings I would receive after the fast.

By half of the first day, I gave in to my hunger.  I told myself, I’d do a partial fast because I have to go to work.  So I ate that first meal.  I was feeling so guilty already but by the end of the second day, I could not do it anymore.  I gave up.

You decide to check it out and see that a long time relative has posted something on your Facebook wall and a colleague posted a tweet of some juicy office gossip.  By the time you’re done sending a comment on Facebook and Twitter, it’s lunch time and your stomach is grumbling, demanding to be fed.

Sounds familiar?  Don’t feel bad, you are not alone.  Countless of people (including the wifey 🙂 ) go through this day after day, both at home and at work.  Technology backfires in the form of counter-productivity.  From mobile phones, the television, the mp3 player to the internet.  There are just myriad of ways that keep us from being productive.

Distractions, one after the other, so, how can you stay focused on a task?  Here are a few tips to help you:  Continue reading
