For some people, maybe it’s important for them to focus on recording that album or selling that product.
Or maybe it’s important for them to focus on what’s happening in their country’s politics, a celebrity’s life, or a favorite artist.
If you’re wondering why you’re not moving in the direction you intend to be, ask yourself where you put your focus.
Focusing requires energy. If you’re focusing on the things that don’t matter to you, you’re wasting your energy.
And since energy is finite, you need to regain it. This means, you also need to spend more time — for recuperation.
The sad truth, however, is you can’t regain time. Time spent on irrelevant things is gone forever.
Imagine the time and energy you’ve wasted because of not focusing on the things that matter to you.
On the other hand, imagine the time and energy you’ve gained (or will probably gain) because of focusing on the right things.
