In addition to focus, another vital reason to know your One Thing is that no matter how bad the day went, no matter how many distractions and unexpected obstacles came up, at least you worked on something–even if only for a couple of minutes–that you deemed important. Nothing, nobody could stop you from your one thing. That’s powerful.
Then at night, before you go to sleep, before the demons of self doubt and negativity creep up, say to yourself, “Well, at least I did that.”
Be proud and rest easy. Tomorrow’s a new day.
