The Power of Focus
In order to be successful whether is personally or professionally, its important to have a clear understanding of what you want. If you don't have a specific target, it is easy to get off track and lose focus. The Power of Focus, according to Anne Bachrach, President of A.M. Enterprises, is the practice of focusing on activities that will give you the biggest chances of achieving your goals. Your time management will improve as well as your efficiency and performance. You will be balanced and thus, focused on your goal.
There are four steps that are important in order to achieve specific goals. They include creating a long-term and short-term goal list, a daily task list and a calendar of all your goals. Your long-term list can be anything you want as long as its what you really want and you must be as specific as possible. Short-term goals, whatever they are should include specific dates, that way you can work through the ones that are most important and keep moving through each goal, one at a time. Achieving these goals are positive reinforcements that keep you focused and on the right track to your ultimate goal. Every night, you should have a task list prepared for the next day, with the most important tasks towards the top of your list. This will keep you organized and efficient.
These goal-setting exercises are a way for you to develop a clear path to make your goals reality. The more and more you focus on your goals, you will make the decisions and actions to get you to where you ultimately want to be, making your dreams a reality.
