Focus On What Is Immediately In Front Of You

It is that time of year again here in lowa.  The fields are being cleared by the harvest and the deer are out having a buffet running from field to field.

It is very important to stay focused on the road immediately ahead of you and not be distracted by looking ahead to the bright lights of where you are going because a deer could be right in front of you at any time.

The same can be true of as you go about your day.  You can be so anxious to get something accomplished or reach the end point of a proiect that you could miss something right in front of me.

A conversation with someone in need of
encouragement, a chance to help a friend, an opportunity that only you can see. 

Don’t be so focused on what is in the distance that you miss what may be right in front of you.  It is what is the most important.

I’m cheering for you.
