"Life didn't get in the way, you got in the way. Stop saying yes to so many damn things." Kim Klaver
I heard this on a master mind call today. I don’t know about you, but it’s the kind of message I can’t hear too often.
Sometimes it’s just so darn hard to narrow our focus to the things that truly matter.
It’s just so dang easy to say yes. I mean, there are so many cool things to say yes to, right?
Every morning my inbox is flooded with interesting things. You click one link and zoom – down the rabbit hole you go… to end up an hour later goodness knows where.
It takes discipline to stay focused. It takes renunciation. Now that’s a concept – not a very popular one I bet. Renouncing the fascination with the new shiny things that tantalize us from the endlessly fascinating world we live in, where everything we could possibly want to know is a mere click away.
It takes choosing to stay true to our commitment, staying faithful to our passion and our goals.
It’s a good reminder for the likes of me, perhaps you too, who like to wander in this every expanding universe of possibilities.
