Last week was a very productive week for me. I am starting a new business and monitoring some other projects, but mostly focusing on this one new biz. I have been studying the work of Brendon Burchard and it has changed my life exponentially.
I watch his videos, take his online courses and in February I will be attending his High Performance Academy seminar in San Diego. Sounds serious, right? Well, it is on one hand, and on the other…
Also last week, I sat down to watch a Brendon Burchard video, as that is what I have written down on my productivity sheet, which helps me to stay focused. I turned on my computer and went to the youtube channel to watch “How to be more focused.” On this page there are videos from people that I like to watch, other self-growth teachers, etc. With in a couple of seconds, my eyes drifted down to the bottom of the page and I there was a video with Amy Schumer (my fave!) on David Letterman. I glanced back up at the “How to be more focused” video and then BA! I clicked on the Amy Schumer video, where I proceeded to watch not one, but 3 short videos of her (at the UK awards ceremony). I HAD to laugh at myself, to myself at the bizarre irony of it all… and then, I actually did watch the video on “How to be more focused” and learned some very valuable tools. I acknowledged being human, fallible and also flexible. I didn’t watch other videos for an hour, maybe 10 minutes and for me, every now and then, if I stray for a few minutes and get back on course, that’s ok. As a recovering imperfect perfectionist, this is real growth.
For your enjoyment here is the link for the video of Amy Schumer. For your self-growth and fulfillment in life here is a link to How to Stay Focused, by Brendon Burchard. I think a combination of these two things is pretty healthy and staying focused, at least for me, brings me so much fulfillment and joy because I get to feel on purpose with my life and the contribution I want to make.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
Be Brave, Be Strong, Be You!
