“The most successful people I know are not busy. They’re focused.” Jeff Goins
I meet a lot of people who tell me they like to work hard and play hard. I always ask them this question “What makes them feel this is so important?”
Telling people you’re too busy because you are working hard isn’t a badge of honour!
It is however the trap that many of us fall into, the belief that hard work is the only way forward. In fact many organisations almost insist on it
Yet if we are always working flat out with a full on schedule, how can we take time to be Conscious about what is actually happening around us and Conn3ct with it in the now?
How we spend our days is how we spend our life and I choose to be focused rather than busy
When we are busy, it can feel like we are on autopilot
When we are focused, our mind can see the bigger picture and create new ways to make tangible progress toward our goals, this is when the magic happens
Working hard often doesn’t get you a pay rise or respect from colleagues, and being at a company the longest or doing overtime won’t automatically get you that promotion either
Tangible progress often will
So it’s your choice: work hard or focus?
