I don’t know about you, but I tend to get off track so easily! Maybe it’s a lack of focus, concentration, or just that I have tons of ideas running through my head .
The most challenging part of being an ideas person is that most of the time, I’m off pursuing a new idea and don’t even realize it. I find myself beginning to struggle with my purpose, trying to figure out what I’m supposed to do with my life.
When I hear myself saying, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” I know that I’ve gone off track.
To help refocus, I’ve written a purpose statement. I read about this in Chalene Johnson’s Push. Yes, she’s an exercise fanatic but this book has a lot to do with changing habits, which is something that I need.
One of the first activities that she has you do is to create a top priority statement. About priorities, Chalene says, “So many people set and achieve goals only to find they’re no happier than when they started. That’s because most people never take the time to sit down and figure out who they are and what’s really important.”
She goes on to say, “Only when you know what (and who) is most important, with clarity, should you set goals and take action.”
As I sat down at my computer this morning to write this blog post, I glanced up at my top priority statement and clarity came back.
My #1 priotity is to build an active community of people online who want to design the lifestyle of their dreams using the Internet as their main source of income. By being present, disciplined, and focused on serving my customers and committing to learning all that I can about personal development, leadership, management and business success, I hope to walk alongside my community as our lives become a canvas of our dreams.
So, If you need a quick tool to help you refocus on what you really want in life, I recommend writing your own top priority statement. For me, it helps snap my focus back to 20/20 so that I can get back on track designing the lifestyle of my dreams.
