How do you focus on the joy?
Throw out your ideas about control , effectiveness , and goals. Yes ,they are important ,but let’s just try something different ,ok?
Focus on learning. Instead of making a goal to achieve more in your job, decide instead to read and learn how to do one new thing each week.
Focus on time. Schedule your time to include what’s important to you, like reading time , or exercise time , or family time , or learning time.
Focus on the way. Instead of just forcing yourself to mop the kitchen floor , tap into the higher goal that mopping the kitchen floor supports(having a clean and healthy home).
Over the next 12 months , instead of focusing on the effort , FOCUS ON THE JOY. Focus on the people and things that are most important to you. Focus on the process of creating something ,not what results you expect.
Invest in yourself more than you ever thought was allowed. Not only will you reap rewards, but those around you will benefit more than you ever believed.
