Everyday we are faced with hundreds of decisions to make (most of which we make subconsciously). What to have for breakfast, should I exercise or get to the office early, what projects to work on, how will I speak to my clients, how will I treat my family, etc.
But there are moments when you can see a big decision coming down the road. One that will (or at least we think) change our lives forever. As an entrepreneur, you must maintain focus on what it is that you want from life-keep your eye on the ball. For me, I want balance. I want to have quality time with my family, love my job and make a lot of money. Whenever I lose sight of what it is that I'm after, everything seems to fall apart. I lose control and my efforts seem hopeless. It's during these moments that I wonder if all of this is worth it. I suppose this is the up/down nature of being an entrepreneur and is almost like a test to see if you can make it through the heat to get to the other side.
Stay focused and work hard to get what you want out of life. Here's the kicker though: sometimes you may get to a point where you realize that what you were working hard to get isn't what you really want. This means it's time to change, and reset your focus on your adjusted views. It'd be a tragedy to keep going down a path you know won't make you happy.
Welcome to the game of life! Now get to work on what you want.
