'You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks!"
I shared the above quote earlier in the week on Twitter and then I realized how guilty I am of losing my concentration and chasing every "barking dog" that comes along.
Yesterday, between the phone, email and a few of life's challenges, I couldn't seem to focus on one thing for more than a few minutes. I pride myself on being able to multi-task, but instead I became a master of mediocrity as very few things were completed.
I realized several things in the process, which might help you on those days where you just can't seem to get anything done:
Nothing earthshaking in any of this, but here's what's different today.
As with everything I share in my blog posts, I'm always sharing things to help you build a stronger business. Today is a reminder - time is our most valuable commodity. Once gone, we never get it back. It takes work to be more efficient, but a nice steady pace is critical to everyone's sanity! Don't waste time on things that don't matter.
So, I'm wishing everybody a terrific Friday, a great weekend, and a reminder to stop throwing stones at every "barking dog" that comes along!
