I like themes. I like the sheer idea of them. I like more the embracing of them.
I ended 2012 clearly not where I wanted to be. I know, I know...you are where you are suppose to be...learning what you are suppose to learn. I can accept that. I just didn't like it.
And I am smart enough to know that if I am going to end 2013 where I want to be...that my friend is up to me.
With that goal in mind...Focus and Finish is my theme.
I can experience the shiny object syndrome like anyone else. You know the distraction of something that takes you off your focus.
My dog Frank use to have it BAD! I would put him in the backyard to pee and he would be in "midstream" and a butterfly would go by and off he would run...forgetting to finish his "business" until he got back in the house!
That's where my focus on Focus needs to come in. I need to be clear on my focus then FOCUS. Get that?! :)
Once I am focused and moving forward I need to Finish. I think they go hand in hand. When you aren't focused ... you never get to the finish.
Sometimes it may be safer not to finish. You never have to deal with the end product...the outcome. There is some safety in that I guess. But if we were meant for total safety we would not be gifted with imagination and dreams.
I think I have been letting my lack of focus hold me back. Rather than continue to try to figure out why...I am leaving that discussion back in 2012. It's another way to get distracted.
The calendar page has flipped...and so has my attention. My attention in now on Focus and Finish. And getting me to where I want to be...
