Today I went to a different location to try to get away from others so I could focus on some work to get done.
It didn’t work out.
For an asshole, I’m rather popular with people.
They stop by and chat even with earbuds in my ears. "Hello. Don’t you see my earbuds? It means I don’t want to talk to anyone." Maybe I need those big-ass headphones that all those hipsters wear.
This is why I hate open-plan offices. It’s way too open and with no other signals to indicate you need privacy, people just approach you to talk. And they talk about anything, not just work.
But I’m too polite to say anything. Also, I was hearing some interesting stories.
Maybe I want to be disturbed. Maybe this thing that I came in to do, I don’t want to do it, so I welcome the distractions.
Maybe I’m putting off an aura that’s pulling people towards me. Is that how the Law of Attraction works? How do I make that happen with money?
I always thought that my general sarcasm and assholery would dissuade people interacting with me. But it hasn’t.
Maybe I’m not as much of an asshole as I thought. I should ask people why they like to talk to me.
Either way, I need to find another way to keep focused on the work at hand if I intend to achieve my goals.

I cannot give up.
