The world is filled with distractions and segues that will derail you from the big goals and awesome dreams you have envisioned for yourself.
Although challenges come with the territory of success, conquering the challenges is an essential experience to build mindful confidence, a state of awareness where you are conscious of your actions and their effects on your desired outcomes.
Work through the challenge of focus by tracking your time, using your journal to reflect on your actions, and recording how much time you spend away from your task while you’re completing your task.
You’ll be surprised by how much time you waste with your phone or on the next most distracting site that steals your attention.
Walk mindfully into your notebook, and set your strategy to remain focused.

By helping others, I hope you discover more about yourself.
A few people have asked me what was the most important thing that helped me finish my book. I told them, It wasn’t quitting a job or meditating daily. These things can help, but they don’t keep you in the lab or in your writing space any longer.
I tell everyone, writing is simple, but we make it hard. We enter the page with our to-do lists churning, episodes from our day circulating, and thoughts of how to finish-up and write faster as our goal.
Then we sigh, type in a web address, and forget why we even sat down to make magic and change the world.
Your personal process for writing, your routine or your ritual before you approach the canvas, can prevent this lack of focus, but what truly keeps you going is your love for sculpting new worlds, crafting new advice, and sharing new experiences one letter at a time.
Finishing is simple. It’s a commitment to yourself that simply boils down to your passion to stay in your good place, your understanding that no one is there but you, and your willingness to fulfill your mission no matter the noise, the distractions, or the circumstance.
