Focus is good, right?

As I get older I have found that my eyesight is deteriorating at a noticeable speed.
Super optometrist, Mark Eagle, once told me that he can tell when a patient has reached or surpassed the age of 40 simply by measuring their visual acuity. So while I start to struggle to see properly in dim light or reading small print, I have to work harder on my ability to focus.
This applies to both literal focus and mental focus. What we focus on has a tremendous impact on our results.
While it’s great to have a visual of the outcome, and this is important if you want to achieve consistent or larger goals, it is also important to focus on the activities required to get to the end result. (You don't focus on the golf hole when you are standing on the tee, you focus on the shot immediately in front of you.)
A simple principle is this: What you focus on becomes what you are committed to.
But beware, this commitment then leads to you gathering evidence to support your thinking, regardless of it being either right or wrong, or whether it has a negative or a positive outcome. And from here your decisions and actions will follow as a result.
Therefore be careful what you focus on…. because it matters in shaping your life.
