How Do You Get Focused?

We need to discover what calms our soul and moves us forward.

Have you had those moments where you have far too many things to do and have a hard time trying to figure out which critical task to start with? Oh, yea, for sure. Anyone who has marked out their path, with even the most modest of goals, is going to continually run into the "more tasks than time" dilemma.

So, let's not take up more of your time and get to the point. We recommend that you continue to use strategies that you have found effective but then test the following mindset strategy to see how you can best implement it.

We know there is no one strategy of focus for all of humanity. We need to discover what calms our soul and moves us forward on an individual basis. So, take a moment and see how you can integrate the following steps that help us get focused.
  1. Stop what I'm doing.
  2. Forget everything else. 
  3. Hyper focus on my first task.
  4. Be grateful.
  5. A peaceful demeanor.
  6. Make it a competition/contest.
  7. Celebrate... every chance you get!


Take Action!

  • Stop everything I'm doing and thinking.
    • Take a deep breath. 
    • This isn't just for when you are stressed.
