“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, and others make it happen.” - Michael Jordan
I'm focused on my future that it borders on being an obsession.
I stopped playing video games, cut out sports, and watch very minimal amounts of television. I keep socializing to a minimum as well.
For those who know me personally they know that I LOVE sports and have only seen a few events that I was able to attend live with friends or business associates.
I've dramatically changed my professional development for the better as well. I am in a constant state of learning via reading, videos and audio content. While others may be out socializing or watching the big fight Saturday night, I'm still putting in work. Holiday season lull? I'm still working, still getting better.
This is isn't to brag, it's to reiterate how focused I need to be. How much harder I need to continue to work. This whole month I've been thinking long and hard about what I want to accomplish in 2017. Spending time reverse engineering these goals and putting a plan on paper.
Are you focused? Or are you relaxing at a holiday party. There's nothing wrong with that but I know every minute of every day matters ALOT. I am okay with certain sacrifices that you may not be, and that's okay too.
The clock's ticking down on your life, will you be ready to take the game winner?
