Short Attention Span

I manage so many different tasks within my office and have numerous deadlines along with tracking training, managing discipline, monitoring future and current operations that when someone comes in to talk to me about an issue or problem... they've got my attention for just a few minutes before my mind moves on to the next task. If they don't capture my audience within that few minutes, I will move on...give me the problem/issue lets figure out the why it happened and what we're gonna do....

Although I feel I'm pretty good with computers and commonly used programs like WORD, EXCEL and PPT, I feel I have a weakness when these programs are updated on changed to new versions. It's not that I can't learn the NEW way, it just take me a little while to catch up. I'm usually the one that has to do the online tutorial explaining all the new features and format.
