Remember when you went to the grocery store and were overwhelmed by too many options?
The paradox is that too many options tend to leave us scattered and prone to underestimating the value of choosing ONE thing at the time and excelling at it, without getting deteriorated from our most important tasks.
The fear-of-missing-out (FOMO) is triggered by the lack of personal boundaries: to prioritize our main goals even if that means saying “no” to less important tasks or hobbies.
As Steve Jobs said, Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
That means honoring our non-negotiable priorities.
Honoring our non-negotiable priorities requires focus.
Having a laser focus requires discipline.
Let me assure you— I wasn’t born disciplined either.
As a multi-passionate person, I have always been swayed by multiple hobbies and interests:
I love dancing, I love traveling, I love art, I love photography, I love reading, I love writing, I love design, etc.
However, my main focus, has always is my coaching work.
Why?! Because it brings me lasting fulfillment.
Having hobbies is not the same as having a life purpose.
By focusing on your purpose, you make the choice of saying NO to distractions or instant gratification.
