With so many changes taking place in our world, in this economy, it’s inevitable that changes will also take place in our lives.  These changes may be willing or forced.  The systematic approach of doing so has to be accompanied by focus and self-discipline.  There is more than one way to solve a problem and there is also more than one way to acquire a desired result.  Avoid having to experience all the different ways by staying focus and doing one thing at a time.  Don’t allow yourself to get up in a web trying to find your way around a vain matter or an attempt to fill a void.


Prioritize and concentrate on your mission.  Zoom in on what it is you want and measure it to what it is that you need.  Sometimes we think getting what we want will satisfy our needs.  They are different.  Our wants are controlled and influence by our flesh and society.  Our needs are required for growth and stability.  Our needs are designed to build and maintain our foundation in life.  Control your interruptions and distractions.  Don’t allow the distractions of your wants interfere with the satisfaction of your needs.   Stay focus on your mission.

John C. Maxwell wrote: “A leader who knows priorities but lacks concentration, knows what to do, but never gets it done.  A leader with concentration but no priorities has excellence without progress”. 

Both concentration and priority is needed when you are focus.  Your potential is manifested into talent when you have both.  Focus on one thing at a time and get it done.  Remember, if you chase two rabbits, both will escape.   Focus is aligning all of your ideas and emotions to the center of one thing.  Don’t attempt to pursue too many things at once and falling short of your ultimate destination.

When you are absolutely focused, you will be absolutely willing to get it done and make it happen.  Are you focused on too many things in your life?  Have your attempts at several different things fail because of divided concentration?
