Find your focus
Focus is about seeing the big picture while achieving the daily details. You know where you want to be (someday). Care for your vision by doing. Don’t be afraid to nurture the dream of being the best at what you love. How and with whom you choose to spend your time really influences your focus.
Interruptions lurk around ever corner. Beware of their chameleon-like appearance, luring you in with flashing lights, making you feel comfortable and well fed with kick-your-feet-back-and-relax entertainment – pillaging large chunks of your time and attention.
Keep your focus and avoid distractions like the plague. Moderation is an art form and falling into a routine of couch grazing, bottomless social media engines and binge watching shows will cost you more than hours of time, but your mental edge and the competitive advantage in the end.
The entrepreneur’s brain is conditioned to think big. That’s why it’s easy to love our job. I’ve learned that progress matters because every step counts towards that big beautiful picture you’ve painted in your mind.
