Purposeful focus

Is there something that’s distracting you and keeping you from staying focused? There will always be some distraction or another, but you never have to give in to those distractions.

The way to focus on anything is to make it important. If you need more focus, then make the object of your focus more personally meaningful.

Make a conscious connection between whatever you’re doing and your deepest reason for doing it. Clearly know why, and the focus will be strong.

When you feel your focus begin to slip, reaffirm and reconnect to your purpose. Maintain the focus by maintaining the meaning that’s behind it.

When your desire is strong enough, no event or circumstance will have the power to distract you. Give your efforts a reason why, and you give yourself a reason to persist.

Live with authentic purpose. And you’ll act with powerful focus.

— Ralph Marston
