Focus. Single minded purpose. Find that opportunity to really do one thing well. Maybe I’m laser focused at the moment on finding that single minded purpose. I tend to switch between a ton of things during the day. My ability to engage in really deep work is limited day to day. I have windows of maybe an hour or at max two hours to focus in on something and work that task down to resolution. Each day I have to capitalize on translating that focus into outcomes related to producing actual work product. That might sound very transactional and maybe operationalizing a vision of projects to completion does end up being somewhat transactional. A whiteboard full of strategy might look wonderfully beautiful and could lead to a world of possibility, but sitting down to do the actual work is where things get interesting.
