When we don’t have clear idea of where we want to be, we navigate the path to success in life like we have a blindfold on. Without clear vision even the smallest and most irrelevant obstacles can distract us or stop us dead in our tracks.
You see, there are an infinite numbers of potential challenges and issues to solve in a life time. We cannot possibly solve them all nor can we avoid them all either!
While many people major in solving minor problems or they solve the problems others people bring to their attention… The key to your success is to focus on solving only the problems that are between your current position in life and a better, happier, more fulfilled position.
The “How” is easy.
1) Get clear: Where do you want to be in 12 months time? If that’s not possible, then look at least a month or two ahead to see where you’d like to be (some forward vision is better than none!)
2) Check: Does a “problem that I see” sit between where I am and where I want to be? Yes, then focus on solving it. No, the problem is unworthy of your attention so stop focusing on it, even if it’s an easy one to solve!
