Every Friday i would like to start focusing on
LIFESTYLE because as an Entrepreneur, its important path we don't
just grind but we create a life. So, I am planning to focus
on Sharing Tips and Strategies on how you CAN MAKE YORU LIFE BETTER
on Friday each week.
Some weeks it will be travel, luxury, life hacks, etc.
Other times it will simply be articles or stories i find that
i feel are Golden Nugget to help you create more space
in your life for LIFESTYLE.
This week i want to share an article i read from
Lifehack website. This article is written by David Williams
and was featured on Lifehacks.org. I will add the details in
the show notes, but I love the 15 things that David Williams says
Highly Focused People DON'T DO...
Let me list and comment on the 15 points so you
can see how you can eliminate them from your
15 Things Highly Focused People Don't
Focus is key to success and this article talks
extensively about ways you can create focus and operate in the
1. They don’t gossip.
Bottom line…if you have time to gossip you are not busy enough
and not focused enough…
Successful people focus on themselves and don't worry bout
others…they focus on their business and results...
2. They don’t multitask.
If you want to create results you are going to have to focus
on boosting your attentiveness and productivity on each task you
start. science has proven that adding 2-3 tasks will lower
3. They don’t procrastinate.
Highly focused people don’t procrastinate. You have to learn
to push yourself to accomplish what needs to be done not what you
feel like doing…I act in spite of my mood #3PP.
4. They don’t allow distractions to derail
Highly focused people remove all distractions. Email, social
media, interruptions, etc….all these things lead to reduced
productivity and break your concentration…get boundaries and
barriers in place to avoid distractions.
5. They don’t seek validation from
Stop living on the validation of others. Learn to seek
your own internal validation. Concentrate on things that
increase your self worth like personal and professional development
and you will outgrow the need for others approval and
6. They don’t entertain
It’s hard to focus when you are disorganized and ironically
its easy when you have a sense of organization. Find ways to
increase your organization and see your
results, concentration and focus improve...
7. They don’t give silly excuses
You’ve heard this before. You can make money or make
excuses. But not both. I love article pointing out
you have same number of hours per day as Sir Richard Branson,
Mark Z, and many other success people. There are never
perfect times for anything. Just make the commitment and
get the work done...
8. They don’t avoid risk.
Highly focused people are not afraid to take risks. Life
itself is a risk. Learn to take calculated risks and you will
learn from both the positive and negative experiences. Your
success and abundance is “outside” your comfort zone.
9. They don’t dwell on the past.
Highly focused people don’t dwell on the past. Accept the past
and move on….dont let it define or consume your mind or your day.
And most importantly don't let it keep you from moving
forward by fearing outcomes that have not even happened.
10. They don’t act rashly.
Don’t rush into things…especially if you are being reactive to
a situation. Take the time to be calculating and make sure
your actions align with your vision, mission and already set
objectives. Many entrepreneurs spend too much time running
around chasing shinny objects and are reactive to their
environment. this is not how you CREATE your best life.
11. They don’t involve themselves in matters that don’t
Highly focused people mind their own business. You have a
mission and a vision to create and manifest your life. It
does you no good to involve yourself in the business of others.
Stay focused and stay aligned with your priorities...
12. They don’t compare themselves to
this is a GREAT ONE TO ELIMINATE FROM YOUR LIFE….stop
comparing….The only person you should compete with is yourself.
Comparing yourself to others is the surest way to reduct self
esteem, self confidence and results. Just Stop it. Run your
own race…Play your own game…and compete to bring out the best
version of YOU and not compare to others in you space.
13. They don’t have unrealistic
Highly focused people are realistic. This means you must at
times have patience, resilience, and most importantly manage your
expectations. Unrealistic expectations can reduce your
motivation, lead to disappointments, and also add pressure to you
that is not necessary. Find a way to stretch yourself but
also keep from placing unrealistic expectations on you and you
business. Success takes time and the Price MUST be paid.
There is no short cut.
14. They don’t say “yes” to everything.
Highly focused people are not people pleasers. I have talked
to you about being willing to say YES and figure it out rather than
procrastinate or hesitate. However, it is equally important not to
take on too many things that do not relate to you vision just to
please others. Its not about saying yes as much as it is
learning and having the courage to say NO….we could all take a
moment and apply this better in our lives…including me.
15. They don’t quit.
This one is obvious, but lets be honest….people quit all the
time. Most importantly you cannot Quit in some areas of your
life and not in others and not have it influence your degree of
success and happiness in your life. How you do anything is
how you do everything. So, learn to make the commitments and
follow through on the commitments you make. PERIOD….no
lets review these real quick….
I love that article from Lifehack.org
