Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.”
Have you ever watched a basketball player trying to make a free throw with all of the fans shaking foam fingers, signs, etc. and screaming at the top of their lungs? Or, how about a visiting team’s field goal kicker in a football game trying to kick the winning field goal?
It truly amazes me how these players can focus and concentrate on a target in the midst of such mayhem. That skill was developed over thousands of hours of practice and playing many a game as a visiting team member.
The analogy between the basketball player at the free throw line and you working on achieving your goals can be a very helpful reminder. Sometimes we’re also faced with all kinds of noise and distractions. That’s why I emphasized and explained mission, vision, purpose, and goals in A Travel Guide to Leadership.
Goals help you focus on what you need to do now in order to get where you want in the future. In the book I show you methods to help you do that.
In today’s video, Tony Robbins also talks about some of these techniques.
One thing that will add power to your efforts is not to focus on too many things at once – sometimes hard to do in our culture.
One proven method to help you prioritize things, is Stephen Covey’s Time Management Matrix (pictured below). If you’ve never seen or heard of this before, I encourage you to research it. He writes about it in both The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and First Things First and there is plenty online about it.
I encourage you to add more power to your life today and every day by concentrating your energies on a limited set of targets.
You can do it!
