Where is your focus for 2019?
Each of us can answer this question differently; which is the beauty of our uniqueness. The purpose of this post is not our targets, but our focus on getting there.
How do we get to the target of our focus?
For me, as I move toward my target, there are many shiny things that pop up to distract me. Things to learn, things to do, people to serve, speaking engagements to be had, podcasts to listen to, books to read. The list is endless!
As I ponder focus, this quote really spoke to me. “Focus is about learning how to say ‘no’ to certain opportunities.” Brandon Webb (Veteran Navy Seal)
Hmmm, it seems that in order to focus on my target, I need to say "no" to things that are not in the bullseye range. These things might be good things, they might be important things, but they don't keep me FOCUSED ON MY TARGET.
Another thing that comes to mind is that MY TARGET and YOUR TARGET are different. Today, I choose to focus, like this lion, on my own target.
