As you read this post, what is your focus for the day? What is the one thing that you know would make today a really great day? Many of us start our day with no clear focus. Then we start clearing the emails, checking posts, scanning social media feeds and essentially being distracted by what other people think should be our focus for that moment.
Instead of being focused on what we want, or what is important to us, we start to focus our attention on things that are on other people's agendas, their requirements and things which they think should be of interest to you. You then shift your focus to their agenda, which takes attention away from your own area of focus.
There needs to be time in your day - stillness and silence - where you can allow yourself to really focus on your own self, on your family, your health, your creativity, your business priorities, and the things you love to do.
It's a good tool to audit yourself throughout the day. Ask yourself What are you focused on? and Are you focused on the right things? ©GB
