We tend to do much. Those of us who are successful, ambitious players and want more out of life tend to get in a lot of things and lose focus. Those of us who will do it soon, because we will not be disappointed, but it does not have the feeling that we have, and the desire to do anything to remove.
There are many things that we think and do is when this feeling of wanting to do everything overwhelms us. There are many things we can do that are good and some are bad, so we need to ensure that we know what to do when we feel that we want to do everything. Here are a few things to do:
- It takes focus. Focus seems to be the topic that comes up a lot lately. If we want to do anything well, we need to focus. However, for those of us who want to do it all, we can’t really focus on all of it, can we? No. So what do we do? How do we focus on just that one thing that needs to be done right now?
- It takes power of our mind, our thoughts and attitudes to be able to focus on just one thing. It takes strength to put aside those outside issues that keep coming up so we can do that one thing. However, it is attainable when we practice. When we practice, we become stronger.
- It takes motivation. To stick with anything, we need motivation. Focus and power is good but motivation keeps us going. Our “why” motivates us. Our reason for doing what we are supposed to be focusing on is what should motivate us to continue on.
How can we do it all? We can’t but focus, power and motivation will help us to do one thing well. Doing it all is not a realistic dream. Focus is. Focusing on what we do well, gaining knowledge on that one thing and finding others we can help by doing that one thing will give us a good feeling of knowing we have accomplished something. It will also take away the desire to do too many other things because we know that one thing we are doing is going to make a difference.
