Focal Point


Ask Yourself This:

“In my life, have I separated those things that have to be maintained from that one critical priority that I have to blow the doors off of?”

If this delineation between life support and your most wildly important goal doesn’t exist, then what ends up happening is human nature takes over and what we end up doing is just rotating through priorities.

Sound Familiar?

Remember, it’s O.K. to let life support, the whirlwind of daily activity just to keep the lights on, take 80% of your energy, that’s fine. Don’t let it take 100%. You’re going to need the other 20% to put toward that wildly important goal.
