My Daily Thoughts


Finding Focus

I believe that in life, you have to give things your best shot, do your best. You have to focus on what needs to be done, do the right thing, not the popular thing.
David Cameron

I am slowly building my practice.

I am not a type-A personality that can have a rigid schedule down to 15-minute increments. That simply does not work for me.

I am trying to make a practice that is fluid, that keeps the spontaneity but allows me to focus on core activities so that they get moved forward.

Some pieces are falling into place, and other pieces I need to practice.

One concept that is helping in creating my practice is being ok with allocating a certain amount of time for an activity and whatever gets done, that is what gets done. I apply this to yard work. I spend a couple of hours each weekend getting yard work done (I include my garage in yard work). Whatever gets done in the two hours is what gets done. I make sure the things that need to get done are done first like mowing the lawn. The rest of the time is for projects, things that only need to be done once a year, organizing the garage, etcetera. As long as there is enough time so the yard gets a little better each weekend the whole process works. There needs to be enough time each week for the MVP or the minimum required activities to be completed.

Building my practice this way means that I need to put a process around everything I do so I can assign time to the process and then measure if the process is moving things forward.

Each time the processes are improved my focus improves. Each time my focus improves I accomplish more. The more I accomplish the more motivation I have to refine the practice.
