Focus intently

Now is ripe with opportunity to make a difference. Seize that opportunity in its entirety.

Whatever is sure to come later can wait for later. Whatever might interrupt you can wait until it actually interrupts you.

Let go of all thoughts about what will eventually happen, about what could happen. Focus all your awareness on the work you’re now doing.

At some point your phone will ring. Yet there’s much good work you can get done before it does.

Experience how right, how powerful you feel when you focus intently. Make full use of it while you can, whether that’s another three minutes or four hours.

Don’t let yourself be distracted by the distractions that haven’t even arrived yet. When you have the opportunity, focus intently, and let your purposeful focus bring new value to life.

— Ralph Marston
