Last 2 Weeks; This Week
Focus is something people have attempted to teach me most of my life.
In some regards I have the ability to have deep, piercing insight into a situation, system, organization, or individual. However, if I do not put forth the effort, or discipline, to keep focused, I produce less then I am capable.
When a sports team is not winning a normal step is to go back to the basics.
With people, this can manifest in a few ways, but I am taking three paths (kinda funny when thinking about refocusing).
2. Vision / goals / destination
It is easy to just keep doing what you have been doing. It’s easy to just do something.
I am once again deciding to strive for greatness, not what is easy or will probably end up being just good. It would have been easy to keep doing the LW;TW last week. It would have been easy to not put in the time in reading (a kindle book – not finished, but getting there).
It would have been easy to just keep on the path that I just got relatively recently career wise, but I was confronted with some thoughts that I am still working through.
My values and the destination I am heading towards must line up. Then the action (plan, or steps or wahtever) must push me towards the vision in the long term. What I have realized is that the values and goals worked … more or less, but the actions I was taking, the path I was following needs or needed to be adjusted.
Last 2 Weeks;
In the last 14 days, 5 of them were traveling to see family. Traveling with two newborns takes up a lot more time, primarily due to additional stops & longer stops. One travel day was last Monday.
Most of what I do for Starting Cube, clients, websites, I can do from anywhere, however I want to have as little responsibility while I am traveling as I can, thus I end up doing a lot of prep work before I travel.
Over the other time, we had a sick baby & my wife had a couple shifts of work. This reduces the number of blocks of time I have to work.
Creative work, like I often do, requires my head to be in the right place & time without interruptions. It might be I am playing a game, listening to something, or walking – but every time I have to shift ( forced by something outside of me ) it takes time to get back into what I was doing.

I hope to go on a hike or two, taking pictures. It feels like it’s been a while.
