It’s amazing that we are in the last month of the year. We say the SAME thing every year right around this time. We talk about how the year has FLOWN by. You’d think we would have gotten used to that by now. Time never ever really goes as slow as you would like it….well, except if you’re in a place that you would really rather not be. But, that’s a story for another day.
So, what’s today’s story? Well, the story is really ME! I lost focus for a bit. I had a pretty good momentum going for some of this year and then I decided to try a few new things. There is nothing wrong with new things at all. But, I lost focus. I stopped keeping track of the important things. I stopped checking in with readers. I actually had a moment of overwhelm. Yep, it happens to me too.
Here’s the cool thing about life. You can GET IT BACK. Yep. When you have those moments, it’s important to acknowledge them, say hello, then wave goodbye and get back to work.
My focus? Helping others to transform and create life altering shifts through a vehicle that I’ve called 28 Days. So, now we are at the end of the year and 2014 is about to begin. Yes, strangely enough, it will begin 28 days from now. The countdown begins to the end of the year, but January 1 is just a number. Your Day 1 can begin today. What are you going to shift?
I’m going to shift a few things to completion. First, I’ve got a couple of courses in the hopper that I will complete and release shortly. The first is the 28 Day Business Startup Blueprint. (Interested in learning more about it? Be sure to sign up for the mailing list to get the early bird info) I’ll be releasing that on Udemy.com first in the next 10-15 days. After that, I am looking to complete the recording of the audiobook version of 28 Days To A New Me. Those are my tasks over the next 28 Days.
How’s that for accountability??

I too lost focus for about 2 months – October and November. I should more correctly say that my focus shifted from growing my business to working on some home-made Christmas gifts that are in the hopper for my grandchildren. I’d like to think of myself as a multi-tasker, but the truth is that I’m pretty much a single-focus person when it comes to bigger things like that. Net is that I lost focus on my business growth and that isn’t something I can afford to do.
Thanks, in part, to you, I am regaining focus while still trying to get those unfinished projects completed by the end of the year for the babies. I am learning to balance my time between the two, and I may have to let go of some of the projects being completed by Christmas.
I think it’s easy to get caught up in putting out “the fires” and forget to keep throwing kindling on the good flame. Regaining focus gives you so much energy and drive and it’s exhilarating really. It feels good to be refocused and driving toward the goals I set.
I can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2014!
Yes, it’s definitely important to RECOGNIZE when we have lost focus for a bit and return to our written goals. That’s the importance of writing them down also.
My problem isn’t writing them down, it’s keeping them forefront in my efforts. I’m doing a better job of it this week. I need to develop some tools for myself to help – put them in big letters on poster board or something.
