Cyber woman with modern military target eye concept

Yes, I know it’s not Wednesday but I’ve got a new word of the week. Maybe the month or the year! It won’t be a surprise I’m sure when I say it’s focus. I have been asked to find a word which will keep me ‘on target’ and what better word is there than FOCUS. What a good word to keep me on track, what is my central point, where to keep my attention or activity. Where is my centre, my heart, my core, what’s at my nucleus?

Firstly, what is worthy of my focus? What will get me where I want to go? What can I do which will get me there in the best, fastest, most efficient manner? What is your goal? For today, for this week, this month, this quarter, this year? No, it’s not new year and that ship has sailed so my new focus is on this financial year 2015/2016. This time my goals are not going to be nebulous, unformed things but clear, concise, SMART or should I say SMARTER. Thanks to Michael Hyatt at http://michaelhyatt.com.

Specific; Measureable; Actionable; Realistic; Time bound; Exciting; Relevant.

This isn’t something I’ve just read about today but something that has been bubbling along for some time. As the saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.” Not before time and, of course, not for the first time, my goals are smarter, clearer, specific.

There are so many distractions out there that you don’t have to look for them. There is so much information available in the age of the internet that I can easily lose sight of my big dream. So, when I don’t know what to do next, what’s my priority? Focus.

Do you remember what your biggest dream is? How often do you think about where you are going and how you will go about achieve getting there? So, what are you focussed on? Where are you going? That’s a rhetorical question that only you need to know the answer to. The next question is, have you found the road there? Is it a road less travelled? A path forged by one of your mentors? Or, are you intending to create your own path?

Whatever it is, go for it. Make your dream come true.
