Intentional focus

Do you seek to utilize the power of focus? Then get your priorities straight.

To focus on one thing is to ignore all the other things. That can be costly because many of those other things have value.

Focus involves an intentional choice. What is important enough to focus on to the exclusion of all else?

Know specifically what you can afford to ignore for a while, and why. You’re paying a price for focus, so be sure to get sufficient value in return.

Second-guessing your choice to focus will erode that focus. Be certain of your commitment to that choice, and give your focus power, stamina, resilience.

Where you direct your focus is a serious and potentially life-changing choice. Choose honestly with yourself, and wisely.
