I'm not a doctor but it sounds like you're describing Attention Deficit Disorder (as I understand it). I've never been diagnosed as such but I have very similar issues and I've long supposed that was the cause.

Thanks so much for sharing, Chuck--now know why I've appreciated your "sharings" for years. I can totally relate as have done, taught, managed 8-9 fields of engineering and constantly "holding would-be diamonds up to the light to study all the facets from every angle"!
....actually team-building (getting right folks on the bus) in nearly every industry vertical to develop or integrate "latest 'n greatest" technologies (via process & systems LEAN-AGILE successes) to "getting the Job done"; as Jim Collins & Clayton Christensen have so aptly shared.
With 5 generations now becoming active in our workplaces your guidance brings much-needed clarity to those of us still trying to improve "effectiveness" for our internal & external Customers---aka, "Doing the Right Things Right" as Trucker so eloquently shared years ago.

Hi Chuck - whatever "it" is - see it as a gift. It is part of what makes you, I would say, unique.

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
