Recently I brought up how important the concept of making a list can be. A great example is when you go to the grocery store without a list. You can really get held up and if you combine hungry with it… well you know what that means.
I find the “cure” is to get laser beam focused on what my end goal is.
When it comes to our Costco visit, I even make a game out of it. My goal is 10 minutes in and out and for $100 or less. Now if you shop at Costco you know this is a true challenge; but it is possible.
I share this because you have to stay focused on what your goal is while you make your list. Then take that focus and apply it while you execute it.
Your attention to the desired outcome will drive you to a whole new level. It will fuel you through the distractions and even huge challenges that any day can give you.
Grab onto to your goal with two hands, focus on the finish line, and make it happen.
