Have you ever lost focus?

Do you ever wake up one more morning and just wondering what are you doing here, and where are you going next?

Recently it feels like I have been doing that more and more. There are places I’ve wanted to be in life, and goals I’ve wanted to knock out. And I am not making steady progress getting there. There are some distractions recently which have really thrown me for a loop. The distractions may be anywhere from a minute to a month, but slowly they have put me behind schedule in life. And that is darn frustrating.

But with these feelings I also realize that recognizing this issues are half of the battle. I know it now. I know I am off track. And consciously knowing will allow me to make the course corrections I need to make to get back on track. Minute by minute the ship is coming back in line with the originally planned course. I go to bed and wake up with a sense of purpose and satisfaction knowing that I’ve made steps in the right direction. Every day is just that – little tiny steps in the right direction.

Has this ever happened to you? What did you do to get back on track?

    I totally know what you mean! I have noticed that I go through cycles of high and low productivity, wondering why I can’t be more consistent. It may be a sign that you need to give yourself some rest so you can be more effective later. Or, clean off the desk and get reorganized so you can work more efficiently. I often stop and make a written list of what I need to do right now, in minute detail, so I can easily cross off several items for a sense of accomplishment. Above all, realize that you are a finite being, cut yourself some slack, and do long-term things to set yourself up for success
