Emotional Currency

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.

Thanks Martina!

What have you been focusing on?
