Deciding where to put our attention results in the ‘right’ type of productivity in our lives. It minimizes the need for constantly checking off items on our to-do list, and allows us to live intentionally and by choice. In doing so, work feels more fluid, relationships more meaningful and life more colorful.
This type of choosing is essential. It is about more than just exercising focus and selecting where to expend energy. It’s about taking back control of our time and priorities. Allowing our attention to be on people and activities that truly resonate, rather than on putting our fires.
With awareness comes mastery.
By course correcting our experiences to focus on what matters most, we minimize reactiveness and accentuate meaning. Building clarity around our priorities and goals and allowing for a deeper understanding of what fulfills us. Simultaneously, this keeps the constant distractions we experience daily, from derailing us.
How can you practice choosing where you put your attention? Can you be present and respond rather than react? Does doing so help you feel aligned and in flow with your true genius?
