The busyness of our collective 21st Century is a conceived barrier to individual focus. This leads one to believe that we can give attention to superfluous activity and demonstrate competency in the process. This is misguided.
To focus is to choose direction; it is present clarity in the light of individual purpose and commitment. Focus is a treasure in the 21st Century.
Too often I observe supposed development efforts being composed from a litany of perceived weakness. This misguided focus is ‘not’ a path to personal/professional growth and development. True growth and development can only occur when built on the foundation of one’s core values, innate strengths, and developing skills.
Your intended impact in this world is demanding your present attention and focused intention.
