A Case for Concentration... (The Selby + Lucy Chadwick)

I loved every. single. thing about the Selby Film for Zara featuring Lucy Chadwick -- the beautiful light in her Manhattan loft, the big abstract painting leaning casually against the wall, her wardrobe... And don't even get me started on that gorgeous coffee pot. Just so much goodness.
But what I can't get out of my head is that essential transition she makes from her harried cosmopolitan life to her reflective rural existence, complete with outfit change. She's like a super chic Mr. Rogers. Brilliant.
And then there was this line:
“It’s very easy in the kind of environment that I work in to just skim across the surface of everything, imagining that you’re doing the best possible job…Concentration is something that is fairly sparse during my working week.”
This sentiment pretty much sums up my current existence and made me (yet again) ruminate on this idea of unplugging and focusing and just going "all in" on something.
The non-stop flitting about wears on your ability to produce anything really great, don't you think? I am craving some time for concentration... I need to get on that. As soon as I'm done with the 50 other things I'm doing, deal?
