A magical season where us northerners come out of winter hibernation (being indoors) and soak up the sun. Whether you prefer a trip to the mountains or a trip to the beach, we tend to view the next several months as a time to recharge ourselves.
CAUTION: Summer is temporary. Being resilient and able to recharge yourself should not be.
Here is my challenge: Right now, invest less than 20 minutes, pull up and watch two short videos. The links are below…
I can guarantee that these will forever change how you recharge for resilience and happiness.
Will you accept this challenge?
Pay attention to your attention! – Really that is not a typo!
To achieve our goals and dreams, the ability to harness our power of attention is critical. This has never been truer than in modern time. Our ability to focus is constantly impeded by pop-up notifications, alerts, texts, emails, and so on. Each one threatening to hijack us away from the task at hand and derailing our forward progress to success.
Fortunately, attention is a skill; and like any skill it can be strengthened. You simply need to pay attention to your attention. Consciously choose where to direct your efforts and take back control. Here are some tactics for winning the war on distraction:
- Each morning jot down your “focus” list. Set multiple reminders for referencing it.
- Do less, then obsess.
- Push back against distractions as they arise.
In any moment, we can choose to be successful by giving our 100% focus to the most essential tasks at hand. Be mindful, be deliberate, and always be strengthening the power of your attention. Distractions will begin losing their power and you will be on a straight track towards achieving those goals and dreams.
You got this…take charge of your attention!
