I'm beginning to understand more and more that focus is the antidote to the noisy world we live in. Focus helps us pause (mindfulness) long enough to create the space needed to prioritize, gain clarity, and even rev up the creative juices. This zen-like practice forces us to accept the very thing we have a hard time coming to grips with: that we can't do it all.
I would like to submit the following to anyone who will read this: acceptance that you can't do it all brings freedom. Freedom to let go and be free from the false sense of urgency we are constantly plagued with; free from the expectations we entertain from others or put on ourselves.
Focus says "I can only do one thing at a time, and I choose this. Everything else is secondary".
Here is a great book that I would recommend on the topic. Click on the image to learn more.
Here is a great blog you can check out on ways you can incorporate it in your every day life if you aren't up for the long read from the book:
