A few tips that might help you focus

Like lots of people in the bloggerverse (or Twitterverse) I sometimes need help keeping focus.  Making lots of new connections is a great help in what I do, but it's not the only thing I get to do.  I have a responsibility to deliver on a number of projects and am sometimes distracted by all of the other cool things I could be doing.  I found a great post on Mario Sundar's blog that seems to have originated over on the blog of Caterina Fake (of Flickr fame.) It's a method for keeping focus and it seems reasonable.  You, of course, should figure out what works for you.  But thinking occasionally about the accomplishments of the focused work of Edison or Einstein might give you inspiration to keep going and make sure at least part of your day is focused on your magnum opus.
