Hi Team..

I have found it very common for many to take on too much...

And, as a result, well they often miss their marks. 

In case you have not noticed over the years it is very hard to focus on too many things and be good at all of them.

Doing too much is often the source of your stress.

The source of a lack of concentration.

The cause of you not being present.

So, why do we continue to do too much if we have validation everywhere that it just does not work?

Well, that lack of presence and awareness allows us to trick ourselves into thinking we can do it.

The pressure of our high performance, high expectation culture allows us to think that we will eventually figure it out.

And that is true.

We will eventually figure IT out.

The IT will not be how to do everything though.

The IT will distill down to typically one major thing and one minor thing.

In the end, that is what we will do well. Really well.

Think about what it takes to be a great marksman.

  • Focus on a singular target.
  • Patience.
  • Control of self and breath.
  • No distractions.
  • Extreme familiarity with their weapon/ tool of trade.
  • Understanding of the importance of daily practice of their trade.
  • Complete commitment and clarity of the desired result.

A distracted marksman can not be a successful marksman.

A marksman that is aiming for two targets, or, tracking two targets will hit no targets.

A marksman that does not know the exact outcome they desire will never achieve what it is they desire.

How true is this for our life?

For our life as a Leader? As somebody at the top of their industry or aspiring to be.

Our minds are complicated yet very simple.

The human mind craves clarity, focus, precise action towards goal..

It does not like confusion...

It does not like having or attempting multiple points of focus..

So, if you are looking to take your results to another level, spring towards that one goal. Take only actions that are completely aligned to it.

Any other thoughts or actions are wasteful and costly.

Achieve excellence in that one particular thing, then, from there, you can reset on your next.

Stay singular my friends.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
