I just attended a fantastic event for the Women’s Foundation of Colorado. The guest speaker was 9-time Wimbledon Champion – Martina Navratilova. Her story is inspirational and challenging, but she said one thing that really stuck with me: FOCUS is emotional currency; you must make sure to spend it wisely.
Even as I type, I am realizing that, like real currency, I only have a limited amount of Focus and I must choose what I spend it on. Does what I am focusing on reflect my values? Does it reflect who I am?
I’m forced to think about the obnoxious amount of time I’ve spent focusing on things that don’t reflect my values and have no lasting impact.
What have you been focusing on?
