How often do you find yourself telling you to FOCUS?
We humans have created a toxic environment for focus.
Some might argue that maintaining focus on anything for any useful period of time is an impossible pursuit.
Let’s just give up on focus and work on being better multi-taskers.
How ’bout we each take responsibility for our own life?
Novel idea, eh?
That upon which we focus on expands.
The extent of the “success” of our life pursuits relies on our commitment to our singularity of purpose.
Let everyone else practice the “Jack of all Trades, Master of none” way.
Begin with Clarity!
When this thing is completed, what will it look like?
How will it feel?
How will it impact your life and lives of other significant people?
The answers to these questions frame the clarity that’ll provide the gift of knowing when we’ve arrived.
For this to work, you’re going to have to become a little less generous with your time and energy.
Create some boundaries by defining a daily chunk of time (At least 2 hours) in the morning during which you isolate yourself in a hermetically sealed space in which you have only the necessary tools to do this work of singular focus.
BEWARE! The entire world (especially those people closest to you) will conspire to interrupt and distract you from this mission.
Go into hiding in an undisclosed location if you must . . . Do whatever it takes to preserve this period of SINGULAR FOCUS each and every day.
Do this, and I assure you that you’ll get “there” faster than you can imagine . . .
and people will say your “new-found overnight success” is LUCKY!
We know the truth – That we diligently created this success over a long period of time with a daily habit of singular focus and doing the work necessary.
May the odds be ever in your favor!
