One of the most striking things about life is that we must make choices. Everything in life is limited. Time, resources, opportunity, and so on. You can’t be everything you have ever desired to be. You can’t do everything you’ve ever wanted to do. You need to pick and choose.
Your habits build your destiny. Whether you are successful or not, you reach your goals or you don’t, results and failure can all be tracked down to your habits. Habits are usually the tip of the iceberg that hides your personality traits, your behavior, and your tendencies below the waterline.
Focus has a lot to do with proper prioritization. To start with, if you’re all over the place, trying to get a million things done, your attempts to focus will naturally fail. You’re doing it wrong!
Many people with overachieving potential (a lot of different talents, hobbies and interests) end up underachievers because they can’t remain focused. They chase too many rabbits at the same time. Having too many goals or one big dream that monopolizes our expectations about life can ruin our ability to act towards any goal. The result is slow to no progress.
Life is not long enough for you to do everything you desire. You have about 15-17 hours a day to make the best of your time. What you choose to do daily shapes your future. To reach desirable outcomes, you must focus on specific paths that lead to winning results. You can’t do that without strategies.
