About a month ago, you may have made a few resolutions. Or maybe you didn’t need a resolution. You already had a direction. You knew where you were headed.
How’s it going? Are you on-track?? Focused??? Making progress????
If you aren’t, consider yourself normal. But before you console yourself too much, you don’t have to stay stuck.
Yes, losing focus is normal. No, it does not lead you toward a rich and thriving life. It just protects the status quo.
Stephen Covey notes how the “Important and Urgent” of life usually gets done, because it has to get done. But the “UnImportant and Urgent” often gets our attention, after the important and urgent. The “Important and Not Urgent” is where we often lose our focus. Sometimes, we get lost even in the “UnImportant and Non Urgent,” which is a huge time-suck (think TV, FB, etc., etc., etc.).
Why do we lose focus? We humans are funny that way, aren’t we?
Here’s the problem: those “Important but Not Urgent” can suddenly become URGENT. Health, for example, is important. But we often don’t pay attention. . . until something bad happens. THEN it becomes urgent!
Or how about relationships? A marriage is important. But until it is a crisis, many people don’t realize it is also urgent. Then, there is a crisis, and it becomes URGENT.
Let me suggest 4 steps to regaining your focus. Listen below and regain your focus!
