The difference between people who make good choices and people who make wrong choices is their focus. We all face obstacles in what we do, but people who keep their purpose in mind and know where they are going will make easier, better choices.
A lot of people go through life worrying about where they’ve been, where they are, and where they’re going. But worrying doesn’t accomplish anything. If you are worrying about something, first consider whether you can do anything about it.
To get anywhere, you have to know where you are going. You have to begin with a destination in mind. In business, you have to know what it is that you want—where do you want your business to be in a week, a month, or a year?
How you handle changes and unforeseen circumstances is a critical factor in the success of your business. When you set out to tackle a project, do you put conditions on your efforts, or do you decide to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes?
Not all the things you do are created equal. Choosing to do the right things is important, but equally important is choosing what things not to do. A few of your activities are likely driving the majority of your results, leaving a lot of non-productive activities filling your day.
