Focus

If you know me personally, you know that I’ve talked about doing everything from going to school to get my MBA, becoming a freelance writer, finding a church home, getting more involved in my sorority, running my first half marathon, and other stuff.  That’s a lot going on-even for me.  So, I’ve made some decisions, at least regarding the first half of 2013.

While I would absolutely love to go back to school to further my education, I don’t see doing that within the forseeable future (like, within the next 3 months-but I could be totally wrong).  I’m going to focus on my side hustle-my own business-receiving multiple streams of income.  I honestly believe that certain things in my life are aligning for me to work on my business at this particular point in time.  Not to mention that I’m assisting a few friends in helping make their dreams a reality: And I feel that I should do the same for myself.

When we’re focused on 10 million things, we can’t be great at all of them. Some thing is going to suffer.  So instead of trying to have 2 hands in 10 pots, I’m putting some pots to the side.  And for TyAnthony, if you’re reading this don’t fret, because I can totally hear your voice in my head as I type this.  This doesn’t mean that I’m going to give up on my goals; that’s not my style.  Some items just have to get put on the backburner for now.  We’ll revisit them in 6 months when things have (hopefully) calmed down and taken a life of their own and I don’t have to work at getting things off the ground.  My goals that I work on for the next few months should have a strong foundation after a certain period of time.  And when that happens, I’ll be able to let those things work themselves out and then I can focus on other things.

It has been a long time since I’ve felt like this (if ever)-like I have the world at my fingertips and that I can do anything.  This may not seem like a lot to some people, but I’m super excited about a potential upcoming trip for which I’m planning.  Most of what I do from now until the last part of the year will determine how successful I am at making it happen.  And what does that entail?  Focus.  I am making plans and saving and working on making dreams reality.  This may be attributed to having more direction in my life and listening to the right sources for inspiration.  Or maybe this is all just a sign of growing up.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

  1. I had to do this very thing in order to get a few things crossed off my wish list. I put all writing on hold to really get my book going. It was during this process I finally saw it really come together. It was also at this time I got the opportunities to pursue topics in the book, and the concept for my website came together. There is no substitute for focus. I pray it brings you the same (and greater) results!
