Where is your focus?

Driving in the Dark

Last night I was driving home in the rain. It appeared to be darker than usual. Given it hadn’t rained in Melbourne for a while I thought that I simply wasn’t used to driving in those conditions. As I drove closer to home I started to think there was something wrong with the streetlights. Had they taken some away? Were they not working?

Finally I arrived home. And, then it dawned on me. I knew what the cause of the darkness was… It was me! Or, more specifically it was my car – my headlights were not working. The staggering thing was that I’d driven 30 minutes and at some point during that time my headlights stopped working – probably a blown fuse. I’m now grateful that I made it home alive and didn’t cause an accident for anyone else.

And, here’s the weird part… My in-car dashboard lights were working and my high-beam were working. The problem was my low-beam.

Where is your focus?

I started to think about this as a metaphor… I can see in the short distance to my in-car dashboard. And, I could see long distance with my hi-beam. However, my mid-vision was dark. This was interesting for me… I do focus well on the immediate task and hover in the future. Perhaps, I’m not so good in the medium term…

Purpose Focus

Previously we talked about 11 types of Business Fitness. One of them was Purpose Fitness – how well do you focus on your purpose?

In particular we shared Sam Cawthorn’s use of ‘10x10x10’ to hone in his focus and his intention. He asks the question:

How much difference is this going to make to my life and others in the next 10 minutes, 10 months and 10 years?

QUESTION: Where is your focus – 10 minutes, 10 months or 10 years?
