#116: How to Stay Focused and Remove Obstacles (Big Idea)
Big Idea Tuesday:
We’ve all been there. We’ve gotten really excited about a project, made a goal, hit a roadblock, and lost momentum. When we lose sight of why we started in the first place, it becomes very easy to give up entirely.
In today’s Big Idea Tuesday episode, Dhru takes us through exactly why we lose focus and drop our goals, projects, and dreams, and how to remove obstacles to get back on track.
A big part of staying focused is checking-in on ourselves and remembering what we were excited to create and why. This gives us an opportunity to regroup, recenter, and ask the questions that matter so we can remind ourselves of the answers.
Why did I care about this project in the first place? What did I want to accomplish or see through? What was the vision? Do I still care? Is there something I’m afraid of? Even though things are tough, am I willing to keep going?
You would think asking ourselves these tough questions once would be enough, that somehow our mind would store the answers and keep them on file for future reference. And yet it just doesn’t work that way.
Thoughts of doubt, fear, and worry pile up. Obstacles and roadblocks happen. Other things can creep in and distract us. Living an everyday-life can easily cause these layers to build up, making it difficult to focus. That’s why it’s so important to be crystal clear about your goals and check-in with yourself often.
This practice helps us dig through all the nonsense, get through the layers, and arrive on the side of clarity. And when we are clear, focus just happens.
