Not sure if it’s just me, but when I’m at the office with a fair bit of work to do, I’ll randomly zone out for a short while. Why? I don’t know, but my theory is so that I can take a mental break from juggling a million tasks at once. Or in other words, just clear my mind. How long does this zoning-out last? I would say anywhere from a couple of seconds to several minutes (or what seems like several minutes). During my moment, I’ll be totally fixated on something, usually an arbitrary spot on the wall, monitor, desk and completely drown out all sound, senses and awareness of what’s going on around me. I think, at least temporarily it allows me to escape the madness (good madness, of course). This is normal, right? I can’t be the only one that does this.
On an entirely tangential note, I love, love, love my Palm Pre. Sit tight until I post up my review of my favorite new gadget.
