Insert (Your Passion Here)…….
Today I am focused on being focused. It’s hard. To commit to anything. And make it a habit.
I have a friend who was in a position of tremendous influence and a lot of people were asking a lot of things of her. She is a kind, generous, and enthusiastic person. She doesn’t like saying no. She loves making a difference.
I asked her how she picked.
She said she simply established five priorities and if the requests didn’t fall into one of those categories, she had to say no.
Did I mention that she is also wise? There really is only so much you can do.
So this morning I am going to establish my priority list.
Writing a Novel and this blog
Living Faithfully/Responding with love
Not saying yes to things that don’t fit this list
This isn’t to say that I wouldn’t love to do some things that aren’t on this list. I would and I will do some things that aren’t on this list. But I have to focus. And limit those distractions that don’t lead me where I want to be. And I have to do it Right Now.
I have a tremendous opportunity to submit a synopsis to a literary agent this week. And I am psyching myself out of it. I have started it four times and never get out of paragraph one. So I need to limit my distractions, believe I can do it, and just simply get it done.
Wish me luck – pretty please!
