Sometimes It Takes Focus

Who recommended: Cristina Favreau, The Savvy Entrepreneur

What I am reading: Get Clients Now by C.J. Hayden

Where in the book: page 89

Why I am reading: To make the most of my marketing

Which quote: “We have so many options as to how we spend our leisure time that we jump from one activity to another, never spending any significant amount of time doing the one thing which would actually bring us more enjoyment.  Keep the main thing the main thing and while you’re at work, your work is the main thing.  When you’re at home, family is the main thing.” by Zig Ziglar

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

I have been letting this quote resonate with me.  I have moved through my life for several days just letting this quote simmer.  It just makes so much sense.  I am not sure I can articulate the impact this quote can have.  When you focus on one thing you get results.  If you are trying to multi task or divide your focus your results are delayed or go unachieved.
