The Power of Focus

I'm Deborah 

I am a number crunching creative who loves to dream, build, and achieve. My goal is to empower women to build their business and live the life of your dreams.

Does it happen overnight? No, of course not. It takes work to build a life and work to build a business. Working hard is good, we should all know how to do this but working smart is better.

Do you want to reach your Goals faster? Focus. Do you want to be successful? Focus.

Do you want to become the person you were meant to be? Focus.

Do you want to grow your business so you won’t get the wind knocked out if you every time an economic event occurs? Focus.

The power of focus may sound like a strange title for a blog post but focus does have power.

Focus is leverage. With focus, you will automatically make better use of your resources including your time, talents and money.

When you focus you won’t get sidetracked by other projects or issues. Focus will keep your mind and energy where it belongs.

So, how do you harness the power of focus?

  • Set your goal. Set one main goal for the year but break it down into one major goal every 90 days. The 4 large goals per year (one every 90 days) should lead to your main yearly goal. If you are struggling right now due to the economic environment and can’t see past 90 days, then set one goal for the next 3 months. You can expand later to look ahead when you get your feet on the ground again.
  • Treat your life and business like a project. Use a project management system and work backwards. In order to hit the goal, what needs to take place first? If you want to grow your business, do you have the product or service already in place? If so, then set up the distribution system, market it and get it out there. Work backwards from your goal to get all the details in place.
  • Set Deadlines. This is a must. Without deadlines you can meander for a long time. Your goals need to have a firm deadline. Yes, sometimes the deadline gets pushed back for a variety of reasons but set a new deadline. Set a firm deadline and stuck to it. If a major issue comes up such as an illness or family illness, you can push the date out but short of that set your deadline and stick to it.
  • Set yourself up for success with a great calendar system. You cannot reach your goals without a firm schedule or calendar system. It doesn’t meter which one you use. I used Franklin planners for 25 years. I tried Michael Hyatt’s Full Focus planner and Effico planner but I ended up loving Todd Herman’s 90 day year, I love it so much I now use it for my coaching clients.

I know some of you are going, yeah I know I should do this or you are doing it but not sticking to it.

So, how do you set your focus and stick to it?

  • Get rid of the distractions. Eliminate notifications on your phone. Get rid of the news app. You choose when to catch up on social media, you choose when to check the news
  • Stop watching the news. Most of it is either garbage, slanted opinions or distorted reality. Almost all of it is negative. Pick 1-3 written sources and get your news from there.
  • Hang out with people that support you and your dreams.
  • De-clutter your environment. I teach this in my personal financial and my business class. You can’t focus when you have stuff all over the place. This doesn’t just include your office but also your closet, your home and your refrigerator. To really make the most of all of your resources get rid of the stuff that doesn’t serve you. I don’t throw out anything. I use it as long as I can (a holdover from my poor childhood) but there comes a time when you need to clear out the old and make way for the new. I took my sturdy London Fog trench coat and gave it to a children’s charity that serves poor kids. They have a lot of teenagers in need. Hopefully some young girl inherited this coat.

I hope all of you have a system to help you focus on what is important to you, to help you reach your goals and to live your life at maximum potential.
