It is called procrastination if I am not mistaking, try to google this problem, there are tons of really good advices such as making a break, physical exercises, time management and self organizing. I am working as a freelance writer at Bid4papers , and I always suffer from distraction and procrastination, just trying to stay concentrated as much as possible, this is not so easy as it might seem.
Another problem is lack of ideas, sometimes you just trivially dunno what to write about. Here are great advices how to generate more and more ideas bid4papers.com/blog/creative-ideation-tech

, and I 100% agree with Stephen King this time, that healthy body and good menthal health create the necessary platform for creative working.

Thanks,Patti! I didn't even think about the use of translation tools! I love your response to the OP, too.

I think this had a few "translational errors" (probably voice to print technology that my son also uses....) Pass a journal = post a journal.... and several other words.

Sometimes...we just "bite off more than we can chew" at once. We can't always multitask...nor can we sort through feelings/hopes/events on command. Our brains just aren't wired that way. When you are frustrated try this: Stop what you are doing. write down 2 things that are frustrating you. Write down three ideas to solve each. Choose ONE item from your list to try.

Example: I am frustrated actually typing the journal
or, I am frustrated explaining my feelings...
Typing: use a pencil and paper first;
try an outline like writing a school essay;
or narrow the topic.

Explaining feelings: is being stuck based on memories?
or, is it based on fear of the future?
or, are you distracted by some other priority right now (like having to fix dinner?)

Decision: I'm going to fix dinner, and then I will come back to my journal problem, and choose one of the other "solutions" I've written down as a next step.... (probably narrow the topic...)

Don't give up...just put it away for awhile, and come back later.

I don't quite understand what "pass a journal" means but can you break the task into smaller segments? Maybe you can set a timer for a period of time, like 10, 15, or 20 minutes. When that period ends, get up take a break and then go back?

So yesterday i wanted to pass a journal on my computer, i could have finished in 2 hours but it took me 5 hours after that i felt frustrated ,drained. et.c

When i try to do something fast or better(improve) my mind wonders from the point A to B,C

I become too conscious on my movement and i lack of awareness and that gets me really irritated even though i don't quit i hate those feelings because i can't move on with my life i am stacked.

So any ideas how to stop my mind from wondering when i try to do something? I Really want to be in the present. WIthout being able to control my focus i cannot improve or change anything.
