As good as I fancy myself to be at multi-tasking, I am equally bad at focusing on more than one big project or event. During the holidays, I get consumed with all things Christmas or Halloween and a few summers ago, it was Blogging and training. Now I find myself totally wrapped up in starting this new business. Really, it is just supposed to be a side hobby; sell a few things on Etsy, do a few craft fairs, maybe put it in a store, but I am finding my brain constantly on craft mode. This has been hurting my training in a big way! Working out hasn't become a daily part of my routine yet, I still find it takes focus and real determination to get it done. I love the way I feel when I am training and involved in this workout web-world, but I can't seem to find space in my brain for both things.
Does anyone else have this problem? How do you deal with these big distractions? It is becoming more painfully aware that I have a HALF MARATHON to hopefully run in just a few months, and I haven't even started running again yet! My other tri disciplines are suffering just as much. I don't know if making a schedule is the answer, or setting goals, maybe even rewarding myself with crafting if I finish that days workout. I just find it so tempting to get my work done once the kids go to bed or while Jesse takes them to the gym instead of working up a sweat! I may not be able to fully immerse myself in more than one world at a time, but hopefully I will find that balance and focus soon!

I know what you mean about focus and trying to find a balance between all the things going on. It can be a little overwhelming! I am going to have to go check out your etsy shop now :)
