This is one of the most important articles that I have written on this site. Spiritually, Professionally and Personally; the content of this article will help you.
How do you integrate and maximize work, career, vision, purpose, faith, focus, courage, business, meaning, energy and satisfaction? How do you turn these very important life elements into an action plan? A daily focus time is the answer to these imperative life questions.
Each day that you get up to go to work, you must start your car. If you forget to start it, it will not go. If we are to live effective, on target lives; our operation is similar to our cars. We must start and maintain the functioning of our life, for it to get us where we want to go. A Daily Focus Time can help you achieve more and be happier.
The aim of a focus time is to help you get more out of your daily life, work and career. It should be directed to increase your vision, purpose, faith, focus, courage, business professionalism, meaning, energy and satisfaction in the work-place. This targeting time will help you find empowered strategies to get you to “Act” on what you have learned and make it a living reality.
There is little I can do to help you get more gratification out of your life, than cause you to have a Daily Focus Time. There is joy and meaning to be found every day. Cheerfulness is a disposition not a magic activity. Simple pleasures of music, flowers, sea, sky, animals, friends & family can be enjoyed every day. There is joy in a cup of coffee. There is the happiness of a good meal, the mirth of a good joke, and the sense of satisfaction of a job well done. These and one million other delights can invade our senses each day, when we give them proper attention. We can experience these joys every day; ….. In which our mind and heart is alive and open enough to appreciate them.
The problem that prevents many from having this kind of a healthy outlook is the lack of a definite approach in working on the task. To jump-start my daily living, I literally have a time each day, when the matters of my own soul and well-being are my 100% concern.
Daily joy can be lost, when there is not a concentrated effort to make it a priority. In the requirements and duties of each day, there is meaning and good. But this realization is a mindset that must be cultivated regularly.
Find and celebrate the blessings of each day … God’s love and care is present, every day. It is today. But, like any treasure, you must look to find it. I literally start and end each day with a definite time of focus, reflection, meditation, reading and prayer.
Your focus time does not have to be just like mine to work. Yet, it must be daily and targeted, to be effective. You can and should integrate thoughts of family, health, career, church, community and service into the mix of this daily habit.
I cannot over-stress how these times of empowerment, learning and growth are as critical as fuel is to your car. You must be steady, relentless and consistent to see the good of this enriching practice.
Be relevant, right now. Make a contribution today. The best time to feel good about your own efforts is when you are doing something good. Target your current efforts. Yesterday’s aim will not do. You must aim again today. Let your Daily Focus Time be a time when you take good aim on today’s tasks.
