We’ve shared a few posts on the topic of keeping things in focus. It’s funny how we all know how to focus our cameras in manual, but when it comes to life, so many things are a challenge.
There are times and projects we all need to do that come with moments when we simply can’t focus. We get caught up in the stress of running a business, dealing with the demands in our life, multitasking, and fighting for a sense of balance in our priorities. Well, there is no auto-focus button in life, and there’s never been an auto-composition button.
Sometimes you just need to go off the grid for an hour, a day or longer. There are times when we need to take a step back and regroup our thoughts. Don’t be afraid to walk away from whatever you’re working on that’s creating the challenge. Hit the reset button and come back when your thoughts are better defined. Then, you can activate focus confirmation for whatever it is you’re trying to do.
And, if you’re feeling guilty for wasting time in the process – there’s nothing wrong with wasting time when it serves a purpose.
“Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.”
