I'm not quite sure if telling your husband that your word for the year is FOCUS is so great when he starts telling you to focus every time you get sidetracked. On the one hand he is like a giant motivator and zen master all in one, but on the other hand it is a little disconcerting to be shaken into awareness when you are drifting into unfocused land.
Here's what happened. I had gotten an email that another marketing company from the area was conducting classes on social media in my town. I thought, hey, wait a minute! I teach social media classes in my town. They can't just move into my turf.
Then it hit me. Well, it hit my husband when I was telling him the story and he said... FOCUS (he tends to yell it with vigor and enthusiasm.)
The world is a big wide place. I am STILL teaching in my town starting in February, but even better I am fulfilling my future by speaking at a NATIONAL CONFERENCE! I got the letter of acceptance today.
So, focus. Focus on what I am doing, not on what other people are doing. There is room for everyone. I suspect there are going to be a LOT of times this happens to me. Maybe every single day.
