Sometimes, Life Gets in the Way!

Sometimes, Life Gets in the Way!

by Joe Carroccio

Some years ago, I created and wrote a book about life’s distractions and interruptions. Law of DistractionThe following is “The Law of Distraction and Interruption.”

Life’s Distractions, if you allow them, will keep you from achieving your goals and dreams. Interruptions either slow you down or completely stop you from implementing what you set out to accomplish.

I try to practice what I preach, but sometimes life gets in the way and you need to slow down and regroup.

Well, this is what happened to Marti and me during the month of April.

Marti – dedicated, loving, first-time grandmother – has been focusing on helping and supporting her daughter with the care of her new grandson, William. It has truly been a full-time job.

She was, however, able to coordinate with our Beatles PR person, Nicole Michael, to do a radio interview in May. And of course, she will still be attending The Fest for Beatles Fans in Chicago, and most likely will speak at the event. We are still waiting to hear from festival management for specifics.

So what about me? I’ve been off my feet, with a “pain full” health issue. Not to belabor the details, but it has been a great distraction and interruption in my life. The good news is that I’m getting better as I write this post, hoping to fully recoup sometime soon.

These events will not distract us from our goals. We will accomplish our agenda, not limited to the following:

  • Book signings at Zia’s two Tucson locations
  • Work with the I.M. (Musical Instrument Museum) with regard to Global Beatles Day celebration in June and John Lennon’s birthday celebration in September.
  • Of course, the search is still to locate a movie producer. This is my priority!

Distractions and interruptions will not stop us from achieving our goals or implementing our program. This is great advice for every author!
