As the 4th quarter of this year approaches, I completed an assessment of 2013. Before I plunged ahead to journal my goals for the remaining of the year, I was compelled to analyze these (3) R’s “Refocus, Reprioritize, and Rejuvenate.
Allow me to share my thoughts about this:
Sometimes I find myself working so hard to achieve a goal that I may meander off track. Consequently, there are things in the environment that compete for our attention and every now and then life itself will provoke us to lose sight on our destiny.
First, Refocus will allow me to redeploy my attention on the future that is ahead instead of the distractions, disappointments, and delays. Additionally, the obstacles that came my way will exert a purpose far superior than the eye can imagine. Secondly, Refocus will ignite the tenacity in me to enlarge my surroundings and nosedive onward in the things I know I am ordained to complete.
“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser focus.” ~ Bruce Lee
Another area of the assessment, Reprioritize will allow me to establish a level of importance to everything that needs to be completed. In the hustle and bustle of life everything is rushed. Everything is required now.
Reprioritize will assist me in aligning what processes are immediate, future, or may be not important at all. I am resolved to the fact I have 24 hours in a day and it is up to me to utilize my time wisely.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one. ~ – Mark Twain
Lastly, Rejuvenate will create the atmosphere for the total me to be invigorated. It is so important to understand that I can only be effective if I am at my best. Sleepless nights, improper exercise, poor eating habits, and fatigue is a sure way to create a downward spiral. So acknowledging that I need time to rejuvenate will prevent me from ultimately having a meltdown.
I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently. ~ Ernest Hemingway
