Do You Have These Focusing Tools Ready?

focus lists write it out Dec 05, 2018

“When you write down your ideas you automatically focus your full attention on them. Few if any of us can write one thought and think another at the same time. Thus a pencil and paper make excellent concentration tools.” --Michael Leboeuf

Learning to direct your focus is a powerful skill that is useful in getting to your Desired Outcomes quickly. The better you get at it - the quicker you'll see desired results (and you'll feel more empowered, too).

My private coaching clients know that I'm a big fan of list-making. It's a powerful, yet simple exercise that opens the doors to profound insight into what "exactly" is rolling around in our brains. I'm not talking about grocery lists here. I'm talking about lists that pertain to the goals that you're trying to achieve.

By answering in lists of specific questions that I ask, my clients have discovered things about themselves that they didn't know before. They have discovered passions, motivations, inspirations and obstacles (some of which had gone unnoticed before). And if they couldn't come up with much of a list...well, that helped them to discover something, too (it usually points to some sort of obstacle).

List making works best when someone (like a Life Coach) asks you the questions that pertain specifically to what you're trying to achieve. However, there still are benefits to be had when making general lists. Regardless of  what you are trying to accomplish in your life, here are a few general lists that might help you gain some awareness to move forward.

List 12 things that you are good at. (It can be anything from building a house to tying your shoe)

List 7 things you do for fun. (From throwing a party to watching a movie)

If you could wave a magic wand and change 1 area of your life, what would it be? (Self-explanatory, right?)

I invite you to make at least one of those lists, come join us on Facebook at TRUE YOU in Action, and leave a comment about any new awareness that you might have discovered about yourself, in the process.
