The Integrated Journey

We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment. – Marcus Aurelius

Focus vs Rush

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Most of us live in a continual state of rush.

The rush to get where we’re going.

The rush to get from point A to point B.

The rush to get the project done on time.

The rush to no longer be the student and be the master.

What if we traded rush for focus.

Focus on the moment. Focus and enjoy it.

It’s easy to forget that we live in moments, not in the future, not in the past – they are where we are going and where we came from but they aren’t where we are now.

Focus on the failures – they are what make it possible for you to achieve greatness one day. If you never get to where you fail you’ll never learn what doesn’t work.

Focus on your relationships – they have the power to make you a better human. Choose wrongly and they will do their best to keep you mediocre. The grass isn’t greener on the other side, the grass is always greener where you water it.

Focus on your day-to-day – it’s really the only guarantee. As Kanye says ‘nothin ever promised tomorrow today’.

Lastly, direction of focus is important – the grass isn’t greener on the other side. The grass is greener where you water it. Direct your focus where it can be the most beneficial and you’ll reap the rewards. Allow your focus to drift and be captured by the next new shiny thing and you’ll spend a lifetime chasing greener grass.


I needed to be reminded of this. Thanks
