Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Jared Bennett.

Everyone says you should stay in the present, but what does that mean?

It means you shouldn’t focus on the past or future. Someone once said, “Guilt is in the past. Anxiety is in the future. The power is in the present.”

In other words, focus on one thing at a time. Focus on whatever it is you’re doing. Don’t multi-task.

In their book, “100 Ways to Create Wealth,” Steve Chandler and Sam Beckford say that at any given time, we are either owners or victims. The owner is mentally focused on doing one thing and the victim feels overwhelmed and swamped.

The victim tries to do too many things at once and as a result, the quality of their work shows it and they get so overwhelmed that they are drained of their energy.

“People are rewarded for how they do their one thing, not for how many things they worry about.”

So do one thing and ONLY one thing at a time; give it your full-focus and do it well. It will take you less time and will give you the confidence to tackle the next “one thing.”

On the court…focus on one point.
In the classroom…focus on one assignment.
At work…focus on the one project.
In your relationships…focus on one conversation.

The other option is to try to do too many things and end up driving yourself crazy. Which would you choose?

Thanks for reading.
