Goals and Staying Focused

With so many distractions in life, it is very hard to stay focused on what you are trying to accomplish and a whole lot easier to just coast through life.

Here’s my litte strategy…

Every single time I do something I ask myself “How does this help me…<insert goal here>” .. Use your brain here, you’re not a machine – You likely have multiple goals, and often conflicting ones: Make $1K a day, Spend Quality time with family, Connect with friends, stay healthy. You know what category everything you do might fall on – When you catch yourself doing something that either doesn’t fall into any of the major categories of what you’re trying to do, chances are you don’t need to be doing it…

The hardest part is when you’re doing something that might fall into one of the activities you need to do for your goals… You might be reading a blog, like this one… Then ask yourself “How does this help me reach $1K a day?” be honest and if the answer is “It doesn’t”, you just close the browser, put the iPad away and just go do something that does help you.

That’s my little secret to actively balance family, work, and social life instead of just letting the pieces fall where they may.
