Are you distracted?
Have you ever decided to do something and gone after it with determination?
I mean really determined?
Have you noticed that when you really put your mind to something,
it can, it will happen?
That is what focus is all about. No matter what is going on around you,
Staying focused on what you want to do.
I made some decisions a few months ago,
and despite everything else going on around me,
I was determined to follow through.
Now in the past six weeks it has been very hectic.
First my husband’s car radiator broke.
Then the renters added 2 more problems –
first it was the water heater – and they didn’t notice the leak,
so the garage wall had to be repaired too.
Meanwhile the handyman checked their reverse osmosis (cleans the hard water)
and there was a small leak in the kitchen, for a very long time.
Needless to say the cabinet shelf has to be replaced, it’s got a large dip,
(think skateboarding hills in miniature.)
Then it came back to us – during the holiday dinner
with 10 guests and 30 pieces of china
plus silverware plus glasses, our sink backed up.
And once that was fixed we paid $90 for a second service call
to tell us the dishwasher died at the same time.
Things happen that cannot be helped.
We had no choice but to tie up the car for
the radiator, get a new water heater,
repair the wall and cabinet shelf,
buy a new dishwasher.
Life does not stand still, and if
you let distractions keep interfering
with moving toward your goals,
nothing will happen.
So with all the distractions that come with life –
Are you focusing on a project?
Is it moving forward or
are you letting distractions get in your way?
What can you do to get back
on track and move ahead on your roadmap?
