“Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” Philippians 3:13-14 (MSG)
As the new year starts to approach us, we need to think about what we want to achieve. Now I’m not talking about having a new year’s resolution (literally no one sticks to those) but I’m talking about setting goals.
I’m goal oriented. Professionally I am happiest when I have a number to hit, a timeline to make, or a task to complete. I’ve learned over time that focusing on your goals in life often requires a tunnel vision.
So as we move on in the last month of 2021, let’s intensify our efforts towards achieving our goals.
Here’s one important tip to keeping your eyes on the goal: Identify Your Priorities!
You must have a very clear sense of your priorities, daily. This is due to the fact that an unplanned day will inevitably lead to distraction take over. Specific, discrete decisions about every moment will help eliminate interference. This ability to succinctly prioritize and strategize every move and minute will lead to a highly productive work environment.
I hope the rest of your year remains productive and successful!
