The thing that’s important for me is to remember what’s the most important thing. – George W. Bush
We all get pulled in a myriad of different directions each and every day. The stimuli we face in today’s electronic, need it now culture are multidimensional. From the ping of an alert to the vibration of a text message, from the constant flow of information on our computer screens to the video monitors on seemingly every wall, it is beyond easy to get distracted.
It has never been more important to develop discipline in our lives. A new attention to focus is required; developing filters to remain centered on what is most important is an essential still.
Be aware today of each distraction . . . of each “pull” in a different direction. Be intentional with your attention and your decision making process. For me, it is unnerving to be aware of each situation that distracts me. I must adapt and adjust to stay focused on what’s the most important thing.
