What’s the One Thing you can do such that by doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?
We want to feel safe. We want to feel secure. We want a sense of certainty about the future. We want fewer distractions and to be able to manage our conflicting commitments and time more effectively.
The simultaneous demands of work, COVID-19, lockdown, family and juggling commitments are taking a significant toll on all of us.
We are overwhelmed by the daily barrage of negative news, financial stress,
e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, negative energy, health and safety concerns — distracting us, annihilating our ability to focus and stressing us out.
And what’s the cost? Overwhelm and mental shutdown, missed deadlines, multi-tasking, sleep deprivation, diminished focus and stress — lots and lots of stress.
At the same time, we want more.
We want to feel safe.
We want to feel secure.
We want to know that we will be OK.
We want our freedom.
We want some sense of normality.
We want financial security.
We want connection.
We want life on our terms.
We want greater productivity, higher income and a better lifestyle. We want more satisfaction from life, and more time for ourselves, our family, and our friends.
No matter how we measure safety, security, certainty, freedom, or success — both personally and professionally — only the ability to dismiss distractions and concentrate on our ONE Thing stands between us and our goals.
