Focus graphicMy focus, this morning, wanted to slide away from my projects and into regret territory. I video recorded last night’s event and some of the tech didn’t work. And I found myself wallowing for a bit. 

As part of dealing with it, I had to let go of the spilt milk I was crying over, mop it up, and move on. And here’s how I moved on. I looked, carefully, at the video I do have. And it’s good. It’s really good. I can work with it.But I had to re-focus. I had to step away from any of my regrets and decide that that focus was a waste of my time and energy.

Now, I’m going to focus on creating video that’s going to rock the house when people watch it. And I’ve allowed this incident to give me another goal. I want to have enough resources, soon, to have a full-time videographer for when I need that work done. 

Regret has no place in my world both personally and professionally. It’s an insidious distraction, because it seems like it’s helpful in figuring out what you might have done differently or what you might do in the future, but that’s not what it does. All it does is waste your time and your energy. It steals your energy from improving things the next time. Regret’s arch nemesis is focus, and I align myself there.
