Power Up Passages

Out of Focus?

Brought to you by
The Power Performance Program ©

April 25, 2003.

"If you chase two rabbits, both will escape."
Unknown Author

Maintaining your focus in today’s hustle and bustle world is by no means an easy chore. After all, we’re tugged over here and we’re yanked over there. We need to do this and we need to do that. In this new age of high tech communication, with cell phones, emails and the Internet dominating our on the go living, it’s easy to get out of focus on occasion. Real easy.

At work, where multitasking is the name of the game, feeling the pressures of having too much to handle and not enough time to handle them can fray your nerves — sometimes right to the breaking point. That’s not good. At home, where you are supposed to be able to unwind and relax, quite often there are a variety of responsibilities tugging you in all sorts of directions. And that’s not good either. With so much going on all of the time, it's easy to get out of focus. And living an out of focus life is not what living is supposed to be about, is it?

"To do two things at once is to do neither."
Publilius Syrus

So how do you go about turning down the heat and getting your life back in order? Sometimes it’s simply a matter of getting yourself back in focus. Trying to simultaneously juggle everything all at once rarely if ever works. More often than not, you end up making a mess of everything because you lost your focus.

You will discover that a little focus, when effectively applied, can make a significant difference in the life you get to live and enjoy. It doesn't take some sort of hocus pocus or sleight of hand to mysteriously deliver the magical life you want to be living — it just takes focus. Instead of allowing that out of control feeling to overwhelm you, why not choose to tackle one challenge at a time?

"Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets."
Nido Qubein

Winners are renown for their laser beam focus. They focus on being their best. They focus on doing their best. They habitually focus their time, talents, efforts and resources towards obtaining and achieving their goals—one goal at a time. They know what they want, they know they have what it takes to get what they want and they stay focused while they go out and get it each and every day.

"Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus."
Alexander Graham Bell

By concentrating your focus, harnessing your full attention on each individual task, you’ll get one thing done and then move to the next item on your list. By staying focused on the job at hand, you’ll discover that you’re getting more done in a lot less time. And best of all, you’ll get control of your life once again.

"If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results."
Jack Dixon

Forget about all of that hocus pocus, mumbo jumbo stuff. It doesn’t take hocus pocus to live a magical life — it just takes some good old fashioned focus. Just get focused — and get going.

The Bottom Line: When you consistently focus on doing your best, persistently focus on being your best and habitually focus on living your life to its fullest potential — one goal at a time — you’ll be well on your way to becoming one of the best ever.
