The Power of Focus!!!!

I'll admit it, I am distracted easily. I have always chalked it up to my innate ability to multi-task and manage many priorities. Unfortunately, it can be a hazard. I tend to fly by the seat of my pants instead of working a methodical plan. Wow, even the word methodical sounds so confining to me.

I just started reading a new book called the The Power of Focus for Women, and I realized that there is nothing wrong with having a plan and working it. It's more than just goals, but the actions steps and the actual implementation that make the difference. I have always been great at goal setting but easily taken off course because of my resistance to "schedules" and "regimented plans." As it is said "If you are not working your plan, you are part of someone else's plan."

For my attitude/behavior plan I will embrace the concept of planning and working a plan and develop and implement a plan. My first step is to create an environment of solitude that is conducive to planning. Thank you Borders, a good book, a cup of coffee and the Sandler System for making this all clear.
