How can understanding the difference between the two can have an impact on our future
What is organized focus and how is it different from a wish? Why should you care about understanding the difference?
It is important to understand the different if you ever hope to achieve your goals in life, instead of keeping them as goal that would never come to fruition. You can set all kinds of goals and New Year’s resolutions, however, if you are not practicing ‘organized focus’ when setting new and/or working towards reaching existing goals, then you shouldn’t expect for opportunities open up to you.
So, what is ‘Organized Focus’?
Organized Focus it’s your thoughts, ideas, goals, objectives, and priorities, organized in your head in a specific order, based on level of importance, urgency, and complexity.
As you can see, based on my definition of organized focus, how critical to exercise it whenever you are setting new goals or if you are stuck in the same position with an existing goal that you have set previously. Organized focus is in some way a reset point if you unsure where to go or what to do next, as it helps to clearly prioritize your actions, determine required resources and time necessary to reach whatever you set your mind to vs. trying to expand all of your energy, resources, and time on several goals at once. Without organized focus you are spreading yourself thin without giving the required attention to each goal’s need before it can be achieved. It’s a good skill to have overall, however, whenever you are trying to tackle multiple tasks at the same time, the quality of your end product suffers as a result, plus you may be also missing multiple deadlines, because, your focus is scattered vs. focused on one item or project at a time.
How’s a wish different from organized focus?
Wish does not have a plan, time frame, order, or urgency. Wish is a goal without an organized focus. It’s like electric car without a charge, nice to have but completely useless until you charge it. Goal without organized focus is something that is nice to have or achieve, however, the likelihood of a wish becoming a reality is very low to non-existent. Unfortunately, what most of us do whenever we set so called goals, which includes New Year’s resolutions, we expressing our wish and not a goal that we are committed to work towards. Because wishes are missing structure, commitment, and organized focus, typically we give up on our goals and New Year’s resolutions shortly after creating them. So, next time you are creating an new goal, New Year’s resolution, or pushing reset button on existing goals set, remember the key component of every goal – organized focus, otherwise, your goal would turn into a wish without a focus.
What are your thoughts about organized focus? Do you use organize focus when setting your goals/New Year’s resolutions, and what results have you seen?
