Leaders plan to manage distraction
“The better detailed your roadmap, the more likely you will know what YOU DON’T HAVE TIME FOR!” J Loren Norris
MANAGE THE DISTRACTIONS OR THEY WILL MANAGE YOUR TIME. WHAT IS A DISTRACTION?
I know I am the only person who ever went into a room looking for something and found something I lost before and shifted my focus for the next few minutes. Right? Not!
I know I am also the only person who gets derailed while doing daily tasks by some other task which must be completed first - like clearing old files to create more memory space only to find the “delaying task” is consuming more time, energy and attention than the original task I Sept out to accomplish. Just me, right? Not likely.
Finally I know for certain I am the only person who gets invited to donate my time, talent and treasure to a worthy cause not my own. Seriously worthy causes especially will get my attention/ distraction. I am alone in this? Probably not.
Good causes can be very time consuming. They drain your emotional energy, your physical energy and your time (sometimes even your finances). Focus will be a significant key to your success as a leader. It’s best to take the time to THINK of all you need to accomplish and create a timeline for what needs to be done to make it happen. The better detailed your roadmap, the more likely you will know what YOU DON’T HAVE TIME FOR!
Being ready, prepared and capable of saying NO might just be your greatest leadership asset in 2020. Use it.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
