Stay Focused on the Main Thing

From Reinvention 101: Bold Ideas on Reinventing Yourself:

In the ancient world, farmers often used a tree, stone or another stationary landmark to guide them in plowing their fields.   It was important for a farmer to keep focused on the marker to plow a straight furrow.

In the days before compasses, GPS, powered farm equipment, sextants, surveyor marks and on-board navigators they knew how to stay focused.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Keep your eye on the prize!”   He knew that focusing on the results – the main thing – was the only way to be persistent and reach the goal.

What are you doing to make the main thing The Main Thing?   How are you keeping everyone on the same page?   How are you or your people allowing distractions to interrupt you on the journey?

Find creative ways to keep the company’s vision statement or production goals for this year in front of everyone in new and different ways.   What is your focus right now?
