Staying on topic and keeping focused with Parkinson’s disease can be very difficult for many of us. Only with great concentration, practice, and maybe with extra training of our mind, might we achieve some improvement. Multitasking and Parkinson’s are a terrible pairing. Attempting to juggle more than one ball in the air at a time is dangerous and not necessary.
We are so inundated with messages of all kinds that staying on our own path and keeping focused on our own task quickly becomes more challenging. Staying true to purpose and remaining on a targeted goal takes vision, concentration, and commitment to getting the job done. It is far too easy to be sidetracked from our goals and endeavors from outside and unforeseen forces.
It is so important to remind yourself of the goal that you have set and to remain on the road. You may stray from the ultimate goal but if your mind waivers at times, nudge yourself back to remind yourself of what you set out to achieve. Create a mindset of envisioning the finish line to completing this one goal so that you might be able to move forward to the next.
