Packed calendar? Full list of to-dos? Stressed to the max? Here’s how to lighten your load.
“Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing till you get there.” – Josh Billings
Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you and I can make our focus.
Sticking to ONE simple task, not fifty different things to juggle.
There’s a scene in the movie City Slickers where Curly and Mitch are riding along on horses, having a conversation about life.
Suddenly, Curly reins his horse to a stop and turns in the saddle to face Mitch.
Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is?
Mitch: No. What?
Curly: This. (He holds up one finger.)
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing! Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean “anything.”
Mitch: That’s great, but what’s the “one thing”?
Curly: That’s what you’ve got to figure out.
Out of the mouth of this grizzled fictional character comes this success secret.
It’s focusing on ONE THING. Going SMALL.
Most people think just the opposite.
They think big success has to be time consuming and extremely complicated.
Full calendars and overloaded with to-do's. Most to-do lists are more of a survival list.
Save yourself the hassle and stress of trying to tackle too much at once.
You can only hit one domino at a time anyways, right?
And, if you’re open to it…
P.S. If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed and bogged down with far too many tasks on your plate, there’s no better time to narrow down and focus than right now.
