Focus – we’ve been talking a lot about it lately – how to get it and how to keep it! It can certainly be a challenge, especially at my age!!
Carrie over at Barefoot Executive has a “40 Days of Fanatical Focus” Challenge going on. Her challenge is to pick a goal in 4 different parts of your life (Health, Spiritual, Family or Business) that you would like to focus on and hopefully accomplish in the next forty days.
“ I’ve written down where I want to be in 40 days in these areas (measurable goals) and where I am starting today. I’ve chosen a couple of key things to focus on every day and for FORTY DAYS I am NOT going to be distracted.”
She asks visitors to her site who are accepting her challenge to share what their goals are for their 40 days of Fanatical Focus. There were lots of great goals including:
Exercise every day and lose 10 lbs.
Early morning prayer and quiet time before beginning the day
Read certain books
Get 10 home events on the calendar for their business
Work 1 hour a day in the yard
Finish up certain projects
Make 3 contacts for their business every day for the next 40 days
L A Idea – Well, I love the idea! In fact, in a little over 40 days my sweet daughter will graduate from high school. When my other two boys graduated I presented them with a set of completed scrapbooks of their wonderful life so far.
I have done a great job of keeping my family scrapbooks up to date but I have fallen behind the last couple of years on sweet daughter’s and there are a few gaps here and there in her earlier years. I want to have her scrapbooks ready for her when she graduates June 2nd.
I also want to complete a digital “Sisters” album for her to take to college with her complete with pictures of her and her younger sister over the years.
So that is my “Family” goal for Carrie’s 40 days of Fanatical Focus.
How am I going to accomplish this amongst all the other million things going on? I am going to use a couple of the Focus techniques I have shared with you in previous posts. During each of the next 40 days I am going to have a Fifteen Minute Focus - it is amazing what you can accomplish in 15 minutes a day! I will set my alarm for 15 minutes earlier than usual and use that time to get a page or two done.
Twice a week I am going to set aside time for a Power Hour – to get some real concentrated work done on the albums.
What could you accomplish in the next 40 days of FANATICAL FOCUS. I’d love for you to accept Carrie’s challenge along with me.
Just click on the comment section below and let me know what your goal is for your 40 Days of Fanatical Focus.
Over the next week or so I will share with you what my goals are in the other 3 areas.
