The Main Thing

In this world of never-ending To-Do's... where it is literally impossible to complete every 'important' task... here's a classic quote I found entitled "The Main Thing" that will help you keep things in perspective:

"The main thing... is to keep the main thing... the main thing"

Regardless of how busy you are, if you do not do the 'Main Thing' that will take you closer to achieving your goals... that is a wasted day. And, I'm not even bold enough to pretend to know what the 'Main Thing' is for you. But, the good news is that you know, don't you? Never lose sight of the 'Main Thing'... because the main thing... is to keep the main thing... the main thing!

Yes! But it's oh so hard sometimes to sort through all of those "important" causes and tasks that present themselves.
This is the ultimate challenge for many of us - laser-like focus. And it takes real concentration, real commitment and real determination.
We really need to be explicit with ourselves. What is the main thing for you? Write it down, repeat it and proclaim it.
Thanks for reminding me, Stephen!

So true. It just so happens I'm in in LA this week at a Peak Potentials course "Life Directions" To brain wash that MAIN THING in to my head!
