Week 8: Be Focused

Last spring, I confessed my extreme shortcoming and desperate need to learn to be focused. How am I doing these days? Let’s just say I’m a serious work in progress but very thankful for the progress. For example, there are only two browser windows open on my laptop at this very moment. Trust me. That’s progress.

Our world is filled with distractions. Computers, smart phones and tablets keep us perpetually connected to the rest of the world. From one app to the other, one social media site to the other… Our attention is spread out over a million things, often rendering us unable to focus and give our best attention to one or two important things.

So today seemed as good a day as any to remind me and to remind you to be focused. If you’re anything like me there’s a lot on your plate, including some really important things you want to accomplish. Yet, without the ability to focus, the road to reaching any goal may prove to be quite long and a bit daunting. Just think about it.

See you next week.
