A Moment Away

I took a few days off of social media to focus on the exam that I had to take. In 2017, my career changed to IT and in the world of IT, there is never an end to taking tests.  Honestly, I am okay with it. I love to learn and love keeping my mind fresh. The reason I took off a few days was not only to study but to keep my focus on the task at hand. It is easy to get distracted with what people say or do and try to match our experiences up with theirs. The problem is that we often get so wrapped up in other people that we take our focus off of the goal.

Think about this, if we are at an archery range and we are getting ready to shoot the arrow. We pull the arrow back and aim at the target when all of a sudden a deer runs across our path. What happens? Our focus is taken off of the target and we shoot the arrow in the wrong direction.

Take a moment and think about what you want to with your life. Is what you are doing right now directing you into that path? Or is it distracting you from it? Over the past few weeks, I have had to reevaluate a few things when it came to the goal at hand. I had to remove social media and keep silent certain things. It may be a bit much for some, but I believe it is vital in planning for your future.

What are you removing today to help you focus?

  1. Your post resonates with me greatly! I have periodically ‘stepped-away’ from social media distractions and have never regretted these times of grace. It’s all about balance for me and I am still trying to figure that out for myself. I know I will ‘get there’ and I send you my hugs for the reminder I am not alone in my pursuit!
