Focus of Attention

In my last post I talked about the fact that my attention had been focussed on other things, meaning that I had not had the opportunity to write for the Coaching and Cakes blog. However, isn't it easy to blame the situation, blame our circumstances or blame someone else and turn the emphasis away from ourselves when we don't get to do the things we love and the things we really want to do in life.

In fact, there are always choices in relation to every situation. I was choosing to put my attention elsewhere rather than choosing to put it into writing for this blog. There has of course been ample opportunity to sit down in an evening or first thing in the morning and pen my thoughts, but instead I have chosen to watch TV, catch up on Twitter or purely lay in bed for an extra hour. These were all choices made by me and so when I reflect I can see that there was time available, I just chose to do something else with that time.

I therefore throw down the guantlet to you and ask you what are you choosing to do with your time? Where are you focussing your attention? Is it on the things that bring joy and happiness into your life? Are you choosing to spend it with people that make you happy, that lift your spirits and who are good for you to be around?

Is this a good time to review your choices and where you choose to focus your attention?
