I may not be understanding this out of context, Susan.  Your tendency is to focus on one of two things: either what you don't have or the problem at hand.  Do I understand that correctly?  Or, are you trying to say that you tend to focus on what you don't have RATHER than the problem at hand?

Patti, I mean that I tend to focus on what I don't have and/or focus on the problem at hand. I mean both of them, not just both!
