This is the time of the year for reflection and contemplation. This is the time of the year for reviews and planning. This is the time of the year to reflect on your priorities and focus areas. But most often this is not the time of the year that these are worked upon. Most entrepreneurs don’t seem to use this change of calendar to relook at the year passed by and reprioritize actions.
“What to focus on?” is a question that a lot of people ask themselves but don’t take the effort to answer. The reason they don’t do this is because of the lack of conviction in what they want in life. This leads to lack of courage to take tough decisions. This results in moderate results over another year. How do we avoid this?
By clearly finding out for ourselves what we want to do with our lives. If we can figure this out, we can put our entire focus on it and achieve it. It will also enable us say no to every other interesting opportunity that we pass by.
Every successful person first and foremost knew what they wanted. This led to them deciding where they would focus their time and effort. They also knew where they would compromise and where they would not. This enables one to spend more time working towards what we want and less time wondering which to work on! In fact in most of the cases of people who don’t achieve things they wanted to, the reason is rarely potential. It is a lack of focus. This results in lack of direction to the effort, thereby resulting in fatigue and boredom.
Try to avoid this in the coming year by thinking about what you want to spend your time on and why. Answer the why question so that your efforts become meaningful and results imminent.
