I’m really excited about this Five Minutes to Focus project, because it requires some very big thinking. Something I think many of us don’t give ourselves enough time for in our businesses. We get so sucked into the day to day that we forget to lift our heads up and think about where we’re headed.
Now you can make this as complex or as simple as you like. On a very simple level, what’s the big idea? Where do you want to be this time next year, or in five years? What’s your ridiculously, audaciously, overambitious goal? I was talking to my husband about my plans for the business last night and he (thankfully) was incredibly excited and supportive of them, which is fortunate, because as I say, this is about being overambitious. It’s about setting yourself a goal that really makes you strive.
And remember, the whole point of five minutes to focus is that you give yourself that, just five minutes to really focus. But the process becomes really powerful when you allow your subconscious mind to do some thinking: so allow yourself a week or so to mull this over. I’m excited to hear where you get to!
If you want to make this a little more complex/ powerful, think about what inspires you about your business. Think about what you love doing, what plays to your strengths, and what you’d prefer to be doing less or none of.
I think Five Minutes to Focus works best when we share and support each other, so do share your ridiculously ambitious goals below, won’t you?
