Say no to distractions. Stay focused.

     I know it's been months since my last post...but life happens between the lines, right?  This post is step number two on the series about Staying Steadfast While Living the Life of Your Dreams. So here it goes....

       Remember when we had 3 channels on the TV and we had to actually get up to change the channel?  We are not there anymore.  Today we have hundreds of channels, a remote control in our hands, and we don’t need to move an antenna to find the third channel!  When the family wanted to watch a movie we had to drive a few miles to rent one or go to the theater!  Remember that? I'm giving away my age here!  

    Our kids don’t even know what we are talking about!  Talk about distractions.  This is not the information age it’s the age of major distractors!

    With the world at our fingertips it’s hard to stay focused on the things that require a little more than pushing buttons or the wonder of touch technology.   It is a common belief that information is power but in reality, action is power.  We need to stop allowing the information overload to distract us and instead take action moving forward on whatever we have decided to believe is our goal.   Staying focused on the path means that we are purposeful about where we are headed and that no matter what happens, that specific goal will take top priority in our daily to do’s.  It means also that many times we need to say no to things that have no place in the plan we have drawn for our lives.  It means also that we waste not our precious time on the many things that attempt to steal our time.
