What is the one thing that if it changed would make all the difference in your home or work life? What have you been avoiding because it is too hard to address or you’ve been distracted by other issues? Where are you most vulnerable or unhappy? If you narrow your focus on this one issue as best you can and actually deal with it, positive change will begin to happen. It just sometimes takes courage and the willingness to be truly honest, thoughtful and self-reflective.
Leaders are usually “Type A” people who need to keep busy and get things done. This typically serves them well but can also be a problem if they are not careful. Being busy for the sake of being busy can lead to unnecessary distraction and use up energy and time that could be better spent elsewhere. Moreover, anyone in charge of anything needs some regular time to pause and reflect on what they are doing and why they are doing it.
There are so many distractions on a daily basis it’s hard to stay focused. Since none of us have the capability to actually add hours to our days we need to make the most of the time we have. Whether it is at work or at home we need to be ability to prioritize the urgent over the important and the important over everything else.
