What are you focused on?
I love to take pictures. Cameras of today make it so easy to point-and-shoot. In fact, cell phones are the cameras of choice because they are instantly available.
There are times, however, when I want to do more than just snap a quick picture of friends. I want to capture the beauty of the countryside or zero in on a hummingbird or reveal the intricacies of a spider’s web. At such times, I want a camera whose lens I can adjust to take in more features or narrow the scope to pinpoint a particular point of interest.
Today I want to introduce you to my new series: Developing a New Focus.
On the HOME page of my website, there is a picture of two chairs and a table on a sunny patio, with a teapot and two cups, ready for two people to have a relaxed conversation.
Atop the picture, I wrote, “Your focus defines who you are and who you can become.”
I put those words there because it is so true – what you continue to focus on will determine what kind of person you become and what you can achieve.
Developing a vision is more than just thinking about what you might want to do or to have. It’s also developing a new focus. Your focus determines who you are and who you can become. It makes you unique.
On the front page of my website I have defined my platform with the following:
- On God – let Him lead
- On what you can do – not what you can’t
- On choices and possibilities
- On solutions – not problems
- On principles and values – live them
