Staying focused



FOCUS
verb
to concentrate: to focus one's thoughts


I want to end 2017 by being able to point to concrete achievements. To do that, I must focus

I love the baked spaghetti pie at a local restaurant. I really, really love it. It's gooey. It's yummy. If I could, I'd marry it.

Today, after I voted, I could have just walked up the street and rewarded myself with that fantastic spaghetti pie. But I didn't. I came home and had a hot dog and salad, all with ingredients found in my refrigerator.

I had time. I had cash in my wallet. But I kept going because I kept my focus. After all, I just voted to increase my own property taxes. If that referendum passes, it's another $30/month that I have to find somewhere in my already weary budget.

That's great. That is quite an accomplishment. I spent money I don't have yesterday, so I'm going to admire your impulse control.

That's the way to do it!
