The Need For Focus

The need for focus is becoming more and more critical. There is simply too much to deal with. If you are not focused, your time gets eaten away by all the thousands of details that make up life. If you are not highly focused, you're probably not getting anything accomplished.

Life never lets up. Focus is what ties everything together, gives it a context, gives you something productive to do with it all. Without it, you'll be pulled in different directions at once, and will never get anywhere.

Make the decision to focus your efforts. Decide what you want to do today and concentrate on that until it is done. Decide what you want to do this week, this month, this year. Goals are so important. They keep you focused and headed in the direction you want to go.

When you have a clear sense of direction, everything becomes an opportunity instead of a distraction. Being focused can take all the unrelated pieces of life and align them to work for you.

So get a very clear idea of where you are going, of what you want to do. Remind yourself of it often and the energy around you will become aligned in the direction of your goals.

-Ralph Marston
