I was reading a book over the weekend about the differences between individuals who met (or exceeded) their goals. The insights the author shared surprised me a bit. While there things like procrastination, fear of success/failure, and lack of a solid story – the biggest cause wasn’t so obvious to me.
The author believes that confusion is the greatest obstacle a person can face.My first question to myself was: “Confusion about what?” As I read on, the author answered my question. Her point was very clear. Confusion is a lack of solid focus that can be caused by:
- Having too many goals at one time
- Changing your mind to what is most important to you and where you want to put your time and resources
- Being swayed by other people’s opinion
So it made me self-reflect and see where I might need a bit more single-minded focus. A mini project for the week.
Join me and have a great week,
