This is a tough one,
How to be focused?
When the distractions abound in appeal…
I will continually return my gaze to the focus,
I know I will get distracted,
But as soon as I recognise that,
I will return and get back on track.
In time, at each day’s end,
Marking the finished tasks becomes smoother,
and not a guilt trip.
Always ending each day with thanks.

This is Rule 2 of the 2016 Rules for me. Work is starting for most people , and staying focused is vital for excellence. In the midst of our distractions though, there is a need to recognize when we have fallen off the wagon and to make the necessary changes. I will be focused, no matter the distractions? What about you ?
My plan is simple:
i. Outline next day’s tasks the night before.
ii. Get started on the tasks as soon as I wake.
iii. Recognize and give allowance for legitimate interruptions and distractions.
iv. Continue from where I stopped after distractions has been sorted.
v. Stay focused on the big picture.
What is your plan ?
