How often do we lose our way at work? I can admit to falling victim of this over the years. It is not that I forgot what I was doing or more importantly, what I should be doing. It is just that I got distracted and began to move in a different direction. What do you do to remind yourself daily of the mission you serve? Do you plan your actions to advance your mission? Think about this for a moment. If you truly focused on the things that would advance your mission daily, how much better would your organization be? How much better of a professional would you be? Clarity is a powerful thing. Keeping distractions at bay and focusing on THE most critical work first will improve your organization and will make you a better professional.
Starting tomorrow, ask yourself these two questions at the start of every day:
- What is the mission I am trying to advance?
- What specifically can I do to advance that mission?
You’ll see after a while a change and improvement take place thanks to the power of clarity.
