How to Stay Focused Tip: The single point of focus approach

An excerpt from my new book (coming soon!)

Secret #3: C in Rockstars is for Clarity

Rockstars know what they need to do to accomplish their vision, how to do it and when. (No more wondering what to do in your practice to get results!)

Try this...

Choose a Single Point of Focus (You Can Always Course-Correct Later)

For most of my life, I used to be someone who set goals and never met them. Then I started a business and I realized I couldn’t continue this habit if I wanted to become successful.

Most of your colleagues will juggle multiple projects at the same time. I think that creates stress, overwork and overwhelm. This is especially true for women. It makes you feel tightly wound, moody and anxious. And it will drive your spouse nuts.

Instead, consider focusing on one goal at a time, with a time limit of anywhere from five days to 90 days. (Anything longer then 90 days seems to get unruly.)

This way of working will feel very contrarian at first. You will have to get used to having reserves of energy and working radically different from the people you know, who give off the illusion of success and self-importance through the hubbub and constant going-going-going that is their lives.

If you want to build your business and keep your wellness, home life and love life in tact (and actually make steady and continuous progress) try the single point of focus approach.
