The world is busy … and getting busier every day. Do you feel it? Are you swamped with demands, duties, and information?
We are living a verse from the Scriptures, “Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4), and Fr. Tom Merton’s advice to “Don’t just do something. Stand there!” has never been more important.
Stop. Take a breath. Just be.
Advanced driving courses teach that, should your car begin to slide, you should keep both your and the car’s nose pointed to where you want to be — not where you are. That is good advice for a personal slide too. Stay focused on your desire. Keep looking in that direction.
When I wrote the Roadmap to Freedom field manual for a U.S. Small Business Administration project in Navajo and Ute territory, I wasn’t sure how it could happen — but I wanted to write for a living. I’ve been doing that full time now, since August of 2010.
But writing is a big field. What kind of writer am I? Where are my gifts best utilized? My Dream now is to become an authority on the Infusionsoft platform — to be one of the very best Infusionsoft writers and strategists in the world. I write Newsletters, Articles, and Marketing Content. I help entrepreneurs succeed by gaining more business and getting more sales.
My focus is tightening, and it feels good.
Are you a bit adrift right now? You can change that with focus.
Do the exercises. Take action.
