I’ve been feeling a little bit scattered the past few weeks and it’s been hard for me to focus. I have a big goal I’m working on and it’s nearing completion which I think has been the cause of my procrastination (it’s a bit scary for me!)
I’ve been busy behind the scenes writing my first full-length ‘proper’ book: Thirty Chic Days: Practical inspiration for a beautiful life. I was inspired by the first and third series of my popular Thirty Chic Days blog series, however this book is completely new information rather than a compilation like my first three eBboks.
I’ve written twenty-two chapters so far, and the last eight are hard! Often with goals like this or with losing weight or maybe a savings goal, it can be the final part when you’re the closest to your goal that proves the most challenging.
I was listening to one of my motivational podcasts out walking this morning, and the speaker talked about having a laser focus. She said when you’re lacking clarity or enthusiasm, to have a laser focus on just one thing.
So instead of thinking about the final edit or the cover design, I’m better served being focused on just getting the next chapter finished. And then the next chapter and the next. Before you now it I’ll be doing the final edit/proofread, having the cover designed and I’ll have finished my book.
So that’s where I am today, focusing with the intensity of a laser on just the next chapter. I’m excited to share Thirty Chic Days: Practical inspiration for a beautiful life when it’s finished, but until then I’ll get on writing!
Tell me, what’s one thing you would like to have a laser focus on today?
