When our day includes juggling multiple priorities, we must be focused on what we’re doing. It’s estimated that 47% of the time we aren’t focused. We give in to unplanned urgencies and trivial matters that distract us. Or we let different priorities bleed over into one another and it results in neutralizing our focus. It takes focused energy to determine what gives us more transformational capacity. It’s easy to fall into the gap of focusing on unimportant tasks with less priority over important tasks with greater value.
Let us focus on priorities rather than chase distractions and urgencies today.
Transformation starts with our thoughts, in small increments: a mental image and as little as 100 words. Transformation isn't a future event. It's a present-day activity.
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." - Thoreau
