What Are You Missing?

My son, Connor, focused his attention on this golden sunrise and our golden, Honey.

 

Have you missed out on great ideas, experiences and connections with others simply because you were focused on what doesn’t matter? We all have.

Only we can decide where we put our attention and how we manage the daily distractions that keep us from a life we love.

Take a moment to read this poignant blog post I wrote back in 2007 called “The Day I Robbed a Bank.”

Over the next week, look at these and other areas in your life that could be getting in the way. Commit to make changes so you can focus on what really matters.

  • Physical clutter, like a messy office or jam-packed clothes closet.
  • Technical clutter, like unread email newsletters (Hit that unsubscribe button!) and unnecessary smart phone alerts.
  • Emotional clutter, like a toxic personal or professional relationship. Is it time to end an exhausting friendship or resign an obnoxious client?
  • Negative news coverage that doesn’t affect you, like the latest celebrity breakup or far-away natural disaster.

What are you willing to let go of to get so much more? Share your wisdom here.
