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.
So far this month I've done pretty damn well on the financial front. I've brown-bagged it and stuck to my budget. Yea me!
Where I've fallen short is on my housework/discipline issues. I found a bug in the bathroom this morning -- EW! ICK! -- and while it was not one of the building's dread bed bugs that bedeviled me last summer, it was a reminder that I am a piglet and must get off the dime and do something.
And that's simply what I must do -- something. Every day. At least 15 minutes. Starting with the baseboard behind the toilet where I saw that dead bug this morning. There's only one person who can improve the way I live and that's me. And all I have to do to accomplish it is FOCUS.
