Do you feel like you have a million things you COULD DO?
Does it feel like you have more things to do than time to do it?
The brutal truth is most things we do DON’T MATTER.
Most of our lives are spent talking about and doing things that don’t have a meaningful impact on our life or goals.
THIS IS GOOD.
It means we could drop the ball on most things we are currently doing and nothing terrible would happen.
One of the biggest current enemies to our goals and contentment is DISTRACTION.
We are constantly distracted by a fire hose of information, entertainment and possibilities.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you manage that flow of data proactively and regularly.
BUT for most people it is DETRIMENTAL to their happiness and results because they are REACTING to that constant flow of distraction instead of setting the agenda for their time and energy on their terms.
Creating PIG HEADED FOCUS on DOING what’s IMPORTANT is one of the most effective strategies our clients are using to proactively confront this constant fire hose of distraction.
It’s important to identify if you are CONSUMING information or PRODUCING RESULTS.
A lot of time we think we’re producing results but are actually just consuming information.
It’s MONDAY. A brand new week.
Put last week in your rear-view mirror.
Put next week in the distraction category.
Put Consuming information in the distraction category.
FOCUS on PRODUCING RESULTS this week.
What’s critical for you to DO to make that happen this week.
Anything else is a distraction.
Only consume information if it’s directly needed to take the next step in producing results.
Having this PIG HEADED level of FOCUS gives us as close to superpowers as us mere mortals can have.
