155: The Art of Knowing Where to Focus

Knowing where to focus can be a huge barrier that, if faced successfully, can have a profound impact on our lives. Today I was joined by Taska, an entrepreneur who is facing a curveball in her personal life that has her feeling off track and unsure about where to focus so she can continue to grow her business. Recently, she's stepped up as the personal caregiver to her mom facing health issues, which is causing her to feel out of touch with running her business. We talk about prioritizing tasks that will get you closer to your goals and honing in on the vital few rather than the trivial many. I share how to use themed days to focus on specific tasks and how the 80/20 rule can help you make a more significant impact.

Today’s episode has been brought to you by my company, inkWELL Press. Now, if you are looking for a way to really focus in on where you want to go for the next year, the goal-setting planner that we’re offering this year is hands down, the best we’ve ever created. I don’t say that lightly, because I loved last year’s goal-setting planner, and it sold out just right after the start of the year. So if you want to get your hands on a goal-setting planner, I really do recommend grabbing it today.

This is the perfect time to set your year up for success. And the bonus is that with our goal-setting planners comes exclusive access to my Goal Setting Challenge. This will be a live pop-up Facebook group where you’ll have exclusive access to me, working together to challenge you, to help you to focus in, and help you set your goals to be achievable for 2020.

And this is what I’m excited about, is last year I had the Goal Setting Challenge, and I had thousands of people who signed up, and the response to it was incredible. People felt like it really set up their whole year for success. This year, I wanted it to be a little more intimate, so we’ve made it an exclusive for those of you purchasing 2020 goal setting planner inserts, and you get access to it absolutely free, but the Goal Setting Challenge all begins January 6th, 2020. So go to inkwellpress.com, grab your goal setting inserts, and let’s get this year started.
