Seeing things with true clarity …

… is almost impossible.

But doubly impossible when you’re starting from behind to begin with. How do you start from behind?

Lack of sleep

Lack of exercise

Drinking too much wine and feeling the compounded impact on your brain and body

Anxiety (fear of what might happen)


Poor diet

Letting others usurp your time

Being digitally distracted (how many times do you check Facebook every day? Be honest…)

Saying okay to meetings that don’t actually need to happen

Looking busy when you’re not

Working little when you should work with more focus

Clarity is the goal. But you have to start from a healthy place to begin with. Don’t be mad about lack of clarity and focus if you’re not taking care of yourself and your time to begin with. Fix what needs fixing, first.
