Sheri here –
Have you ever spent time just overwhelmed with choices? And focusing on just one thing seemed impossible.
Too much to do and you don’t know where to begin!
So, you start something entirely new! Of course, that only makes it worse.
I have to say the last couple of weeks seemed like chaos squared. Trying to find the focus point has been part of the problem.
Ok, I had a project I was working on and finally got it done – very successfully by my measures. WooHoo!
But, there were so many other things demanding I spend time on them also.
How do you focus on one thing?
How do you decide what’s important?
How do you pick from all the projects that you have going on?
I don’t know about you, but I live in an overcommitted world.
I need a way to be able to prioritize, to make good choices, set boundaries and say no.
Do you find it difficult to say no and set boundaries so you can focus on ONE thing?
Stop and get some clarity
One of the best ways that I’ve found to set priorities is to be very clear about my personal and business values. My values drive my priorities and from that it drives where I spend my time.
If you’re not clear on your agenda, your priorities, and values, maybe it is time to stop and get some clarity.
Take this as an opportunity to put your relationships, your self-care, your time with your God, your service projects, your fun time and even how you spend money in perspective. Assure that you’ve got your focus in the right spot – consistent with what is most important to you.
Setting your values and your priorities is an important self-care activity. It might be hard to randomly say no to something, but when it is not even on your list of what’s important, it gets easier.
Then you can focus!
