Just One Thing for 2015

Do you find yourself still trying to re-focus as the new year is racing along?  Many have their usual long list of resolutions and intentions.  And others including myself  have decided to focus on just one thing.

During a recent episode of Pat Flynn’s – Smart Passive Income podcast he shared http://www.the1thing.com/.  This book zeroed in on why multitasking can do more harm than good.  In fact the authors called it counterproductive.

Having the courage and intention to focus on what’s important takes time.  Silencing the noise and saying no to multitasking takes daily habit resetting of expectations for yourself and those who demand much from you.  This book really gives the why and the how helping to break the bad habit of “doing it all” and multitasking.

Check it out and let me know what you think!!

We have the best of intentions, when racing from one activity to the other in an effort to get EVERYTHING done.  Well after reading “The 1 Thing” no more multitasking allowed for me.  

A colleague recently shared how she sets specific vows and an overall theme to stay focused.  What a grand idea!  As I thought about what was to come for 2015 this method seemed really affective.  

So for 2015 CREATIVITY will be my one thing.  Creativity will be my theme when focusing on blogging , business, and family goals.  Nothing to slow you down like the feeling of wanting to progress but not moving as fast as you’d like.  Well that is OK.  For me as long as I am staying creative and finding ways to move forward that will do just fine.

Thinking creatively spurs action and action spurs completion of goals.

So for 2015 what is your ONE thing?

Wishing you a great year!
