Ten to One

Life is filled with distractions.  Maybe even most of life.

List 10 things you want to accomplish in the next 12 months.  Now whittle that down to just 3 goals.  Eliminate 2 of those, and there’s your #1 task for the year.

What could keep you from achieving it?  List 10 such hindrances. (That shouldn’t be hard!)  Shrink them down to 3.  Now delete 2.  There it is -- the landmine which, as far as you know, is most likely to spoil what you most want to happen.

Would you agree that the quality of your next year depends largely on how you deal with distractions?

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Never rely on what you think you know.  Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way.  Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the Lord and refuse to do wrong.”  Proverbs 3:5-7
