Distraction is a major cause of accidents and mis-steps in both your business and your personal life. It can be a large problem if you allow it. Believe me, I know first hand what disasters can befall you if distraction is allowed to enter into the equation. Simple everyday tasks can turn ugly with very unfortunate results if you aren't careful.
Case in point; Last night I was getting my coffee pot ready for this morning. I had put in the water, taken the coffee can down and opened it, prepared to scoop out the correct amount of grounds when I became distracted. Big mistake...!
Whatever the cause of the distraction was, it was just enough to cause me to forget to put the coffee grounds in the basket. So when I started the coffee this morning, what I had was hot water poured over day old grounds. Not a good way to start the day!
Second distraction; After doing my post last night, I scheduled it to post at 5:00 in the morning like I always do. Just that I got distracted when I put in the date, so I put in the wrong day. Needless to say, this morning came and ...no post. Not good!
The point I'm trying to make here is don't let yourself get distracted from your purpose. Don't get distracted from your goals. don't get distracted from your plan...YOUR plan! Not the plan of someone else, not the plan made to change because of distraction. Stay on the true path, the path you originally saw and envisioned before you allowed yourself to become distracted.
Now, I've made fresh coffee with fresh grounds...so before I get distracted again let's have a fresh cup, OK?
