Whenever I’m working on something, there always seems to be some sort of distraction tempting me to take my eyes off what I’m currently doing. Earlier today I was writing out some of my professional goals for the year and random thoughts such as watering the plants and what I was going to wear for an upcoming trip almost three weeks from now popped up. Not only that, when I’m working on priority items such as business development or preparing for an upcoming engagement, a flood of ideas (that have no real consequence) seek to rob me of my focus. Perhaps you’ve been in similar situations. As of late, I’ve had to cut back on social media. As entertaining as it is, man is it a time drainer. Before you know it, you look up and you’ve been on Facebook watching videos for an hour. It has happened to me several times.
We must remember that the time we have can never be given back. Every second we are alive is the most precious gift we possess and it is fleeting. That’s why we must prioritize what matters the most and because that is what will make the biggest difference in our lives.
