There may be other distractions as boredom or apathy these are closer to the depression side than the love side so again they have a negative quality and expectancy of failure or lack “ah I give up this is going no-where anyway.” See that is expecting to receive nothing to achieve nothing. Expect nothing and nothing is what you will be given.
Other distractions may be things we like as in blinded by love we may also have other things blind us so we run out of time and forget to place our attention in the future we are molding by our attention. These things could be Television, Games, Music, and or Friends, anything we may like doing can become a distraction. I am not saying we must eliminate all distractions yes we may enjoy all of these but we also need remember if we want something we must take the time to build it and building it does require our attention on it.
If I want something done it will not get done while I am watching television, playing games, talking with friends, or listening to music. I can do it while I play music in the back ground and this may even help but putting my full attention on just listening and doing nothing else will not let me get something I want done.
