What's Your Number One Focus for 2020?

What's Your Number One Focus for 2020?

The new decade is here!

Have you put together Resolutions or Goals for the new year and new decade?

I'm a goal person. Resolutions to me are just decisions to do or not to do something. For example, a resolution is... "I'm going to lose weight this year." As opposed to a goal... "I'm going to live a healthier life style. To do so I'm going to eat more plant base (look up recipes), exercise 3 time a week (yoga or Pilates) and stretch for 10 minutes each day. My goal is to lose five pounds a month. I'm doing this to feel more energized."

But, What is Your Focus?

Mine, is Mindfulness or Being Mindful.

Mindfulness. What is it?

Per Wikipedia, "Mindfulness is the psychological process of purposely bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment without judgment..."

My focus is to be more mindful, be more present, in everything I do. What does that mean and how will that work...

- When someone is speaking I'm going to truly listen. I'm going to resist the urge to think of my to do list or shopping list. I'm going to actively listen so I truly understand what the person is saying.

- When I'm doing research I going to focus on the research. I'm not going to click on something, some shiny object, and get sidetracked.

- When I'm writing content, that's the only thing that's going to be on my screen. I'm not going to have anything up on the other monitors. No more clicking on WA dashboard and getting distracted by a new post or what's going on in LiveChat.

I'm going to practice being present in everything I do.

This is great and right up my alley as far as what I have decided to do as well. I usually leave my phone on my email and when a new post comes up from someone here I will click it to see what it says.

I, like you, am going to stop that. I will focus more on my content and if I have time to comment or post here in WA... then I will. But, only if I have my goal met that I have set for myself.

I wish you the best in the new year!

Sounds good, Bob!

I started setting a timer/alarm for my WA time. I'm hoping that will help me be more disciplined with my time.

I appreciate the good wishes! I hope you have a fabulous 2020 as well!

I actually like the idea of a timer too. Hey I’m going to use that one. Thanks for the idea.

I hope it helps!

I got the idea from when I don't want to do something. I set a timer for ten minutes and just do it. It's great for tackling big projects where I don't even know where to start.

I can do just about anything for ten minutes.

Good luck!

My focus this year is going to be enjoying my family. I have worked for many, many years supporting, guiding, providing. Certainly that won't stop. But, this year I want to begin to focus on enjoying the people my kids have become and not underpin their lives, but share them. Thanks for the post.

Hey Taetske!

Thank you, I wish the same for 2020 and the decade!

It sounds like a good shift in priorities. As long as we are learning, we are growing.

I'm with you regarding dropping some pounds! :)
