We’ve all heard the cliches about the need to work smarter, not harder. We’ve been fed promises about how the efficiencies of technology will streamline our lives.
And yet…too many people feel like they are working harder than ever while stuck in the same status.
Focus on Your Deepest Fulfillment
The distractions of our modern society permeate every waking hour — smart-phone addiction, anyone? — making it harder and harder to maintain focus on our biggest idea. This is part of the challenge in making the journey to entrepreneurship — setting all the small things aside.
It’s critical to follow your passion, even your bliss. That is often where your best ideas are born. Of course, you have to have a good plan in order to get there — which is where the word “practical” comes in. Hire a guide, do the training, and pack the right gear for the climb. In other words:
Find a great mentor, do your research, and equip yourself with the best product and the best people to launch your big idea. -Kevin Harrington
Never Think Half-Hearted or Small
You might already have that one big idea, the one you just know will be your legacy to the world. But it keeps getting pushed to the back burner by lesser projects — things that seem more urgent or that promise a more immediate return.
In the meantime, any efforts you do make toward your big idea fall flat because they don’t get the best of your energy. You’re hearing “no” a lot, not because it’s a bad idea, but because your attention is divided. And nobody likes hearing “no.”
Enough of that. It’s time to focus in on what will bring you the most success and the deepest fulfillment, and let everything else go.
