This is one of my favorite t-shirts from my super cool t-shirt supplier @PunkMasters. To me it implies that we need to focus on what’s important and delete all of the extraneous stuff. With the New Year I decided I could use a little more discipline in many areas of my life. I am always searching for new and exciting stuff. I also have what most Americans have, which is commitment issues. You know what I am talking about…. We say yes to far too much and as a result we lose focus on what really matters. I recently read an article by Greg McKeown. In it, he said we should engage in the disciplined pursuit of less.
Cathy Davidson stated in her book, Now You See It: How Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn that:
Without focus, the world is chaos; there’s simply too much to see, hear, and understand, and focus lets us drill down to the input we believe is most useful to us.
So, this year I plan to spend a little time with self-examination and will hone the art of focus.
