i’m becoming way too restless nowadays. Not able to concentrate on anything. I’ve become a compulsive multitasker. And sometimes I’m reading so many things at the same time that it can get maddening. Even as I write this, my mind is on some six other things and i’m listening to music and trying to overhear some colleagues.
I think I need to start playing blitz chess again. With a human (I’ve been playing with a program, but in that case it’s easy to get distracted). And either using a chess board or blindfold. No computer screens please – there again I can get distracted and not concentrate properly. Also it’s important that it’s a blitz (< 10 mins per player) game. If I have a longer time to think there's the danger that I might take my mind off the game, which can defeat the very purpose.
