The Task of Staying On Task!
I am laughing and shaking my head at the same time while I pen
this article today! I am thinking about the times I have entered
the grocery store with the intention of picking up a couple of items.
After a few strolls down each grocery aisle, I began thinking to myself
“I need this item and that item”. Just one more! By the time I got
to the end of the grocery aisle, my hands were full, things were falling
out of my hands and I was bending down picking up items only to drop
another one! This is so comical sometimes.
Then, ultimately with a mad dash, I headed over to the front of the store to pick up my hand basket. I then tried to convince myself that it’s okay, It’s just a few more things I REALLY needed!
"I am learning more about taking the time to be more
razor-focused and intentional"
Grant it, there are some items we actually do need, but I must say
there are times when it’s just not the case. LOL
I found out that when I take a to-do-list with me, I move with ease
and purpose. Thus, I am collected and am very efficient with my time as
well as eliminating the rat race and the acrobatic performance in the
middle of the aisle.
I am learning more about taking the time to be more razor-focused and
Intentional. . . . and you know what? It works for me!
I think about this grocery store shopping experience scenario quite
often when I hone in on my journey towards my vision. I have to remind
myself to take the time to get still, focused, and intentional about being
razor-focused on where I am headed and how I will get there.
Putting that old paper and pen to work, by writing things down, reviewing it, and tracking where I am and what I am doing, makes a lot of difference in being more efficient with my time. Time is one of our greatest commodities and it is of the essence. I have learned that the shopping experience is not
about how much I can balance but how much of what is in my hands is
really a necessity!
Today I will begin with this affirmation: Today, I am razor-focused and intentional about how I utilize my time as I move forward my vision. I am on task.
