A quick peek at the dates on my posts shows I’ve been somewhat absent recently. The fact is I needed time to think about, wonder about and evaluate recent choices and paths. Those sessions revealed I wasn’t living fully my core passions and helped clarify what those passions TRULY are: (1) teaching (2) writing (3) reading for fun (4) reading to learn and (5) living simply. So I ordered several books on the areas where I would like to grow and improve, starting with focus.
After reading and working through The Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard a lightbulb (or three!) went off. Suddenly I was knee-deep in an idea that will change my life. The idea isn’t a new one, really. I just didn’t believe in myself enough to allow the idea to blossom into its potential. But the books I’ve read and the conversations I’ve had with three experts and two friends woke me up to how silly I was being.
I cannot emphasize enough how crucial CLARITY is to positive change and growth. Only when you get clear – I mean really clear – on exactly what it is you want, can life show you the way. And only with LASER FOCUS are you able to use that clarity to stay on the path to get where it is you truly want to be.
Enough of the rah rah talk 🙂 The point is, I’m planning big changes for my life and those changes will affect the purpose, content and design of this site. I hope you will enjoy the changes and I look forward to your feedback as I begin rolling them out.
So if you don’t see me on here very often the next few months, don’t worry; I’m not giving up on the dreams or passions I’ve rambled about for years. Exactly the opposite: I’m making those dreams and passions my life’s focus.
And I hope you are doing the same thing 😀
P.S. It’s true what “they” say about TV being a HUGE time suck. I cancelled Dish Network in January 2011 and saw an immediate increase in productivity for my business; my attention’s been redirected to reading which, I believe, is directly related to my finding much-needed clarity and focus; and my procrastination has decreased by at least 75% (that’s a big deal for me).
