Do you actually think that you didn’t have an option when you were distracted?
The real situation is more likely that you were not focused on your priority.
It takes a lot of discipline to identify what’s most important to you and to stick with it.
People can stand in your way, someone can even push you but if you ignore them and keep pursuing your target, you’ll most likely surpass expectation without being entangled in an unnecessary fight.
Consoling yourself with the excuse that you were blocked or pushed wouldn’t justify the fact that you absconded from your assignment, especially when you got too engulfed that you couldn’t really get back to what truly mattered to you.
Next time you set out to do a thing, don’t let unimportant things take your attention, time or resources.
Focus and discipline are important if you really want to accomplish a task.
Who am I really?
Can that be defined yet?
Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me.
Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work?
Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress.
I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!
