Honing in and focusing on what is in front of you
It can be easy to get distracted by thoughts and ideas of launching a new product or service, volunteering for something you are passionate about, or taking part in activities that are just not your job. Michelle talks about how some of these are indeed worthy causes and make a difference, however all these things are taking up your precious time and brain power. You need to be selective about what position you put yourself in.
