It almost seems counterintuitive doesn’t it? But – to focus your efforts, you have to learn to give up control. You cannot control…

  • How someone behaves
  • What decision is reached
  • How someone feels
  • The traffic
  • The weather
  • How your team performs
  • The value of your investments
  • What someone thinks of you

What you can control…

  • Where you focus your energies
  • What projects you start
  • How you react to situations
  • Your attitude
  • The directions you give
  • The environment you create

Quit worrying about things that you can’t control. Stop making projects of people, and focus your energies on things that will change based on YOUR efforts. Take charge. Be creative. Start something new. Don’t give up. Focus.
