Focusing For Success

“Did you know that Americans watch over five hours of television per day” says Dr. Sue. With the distraction of smart phones and  multiple televisions per home, it has become increasingly difficult to focus on what really matters in our lives.

Daily we faithfully prioritize our must do’s like faith, family and work. Nevertheless , God has given all of us passions and talents that he expects us to exercise and use. Prior to sunrise many of us quietly hear God asking about our life’s work. 

 But where do we get the time … as we battle not to be distracted by the world’s chatter?

“Here are some tips to help you  focus on what’s really important says Dr. Sue”:

  • In order to focus on your life’s most important tasks, first  jot down what you need to do, next sort and prioritize these items according to high (its life or death and must be done today), or medium (it can wait till tomorrow), or low (later).
  • Complete the day’s most important task first thing in the morning. That’s why parents teach their children the habit of making up their beds  first, and grade school teachers know the secret of teaching math first in the morning prior to the other subjects.
  • In the early morning our heads are clear of the confusion from the prior day and even difficult tasks seem easy!
