Concentration of effort

For reasons that will become apparent over the next couple of weeks, wargaming – and most especially the possibility of me fighting a wargame – has to take a back seat. The reason is nothing serious; it is just that I need to concentrate on trying to do one thing rather than many things at the same time.

This does not mean that I will give up blogging. In fact I have quite a few things that I want to write blog entries about and have not got yet got around to. What it does mean is that until just before Christmas I will not be doing anything to develop the PORTABLE WARGAME other than making the odd minor cosmetic change. I may do some thinking, but very little else.

  1. Hi Bob,

    As we both know, time spent thinking is seldom wasted and so I am sure that a prolonged session of the same will ultimately be beneficial to all!

    All the best,

    It is also important where you spend the time thinking!

    All the best,

  5. To paraphrase the great Yankees catcher Yogi Berra, "you can't think and game at the same time".

    I am behind on everything right now, having just finished the removal of wall paper and repainting of our kitchen. i have filed, in my head, a dozen ideas for World War Two battles to try in BBPW, several classes of model ship I need to build, and some ideas for cavalry in PW:ECW. On top of that, I think I am ready to shake off a case of "painting burn-out" that overtook me last spring.

    Truly creative people are ALWAYS thinking. When they say "I need time to think", what they really mean is "I need time to sort out all the thoughts I already have". I, too , am sure that the end results of your mental process will be worth the effort.

  6. Steven Page,

    I used to work for a boss who could never understand why, when had I problem I could not solve, I went for a walk. He kept asking me why I was not at my desk working on a solution. When I told him that I went for a walk so that I was NOT thinking about the problem, he went ballistic. His temper was not improved when I told him that I had come up with a solution whilst NOT thinking about the problem.

    He never, ever understood the concept of 'think time' or that sometimes letting your brain get on with doing something subconsciously produced faster results.

    Good luck with all your projects; they will all come to fruition in the fullness of time.

    All the best,

    Bob
