Focus: Blurry or Sharp

yellow irisI love, love, love to take pictures. However, there have been times when I’ve frustrated myself – the pictures weren’t as clear as they were intended to be. GASP!

I started taking pictures back in the day when you used film. So, you had the expense of the film and processing before you could find out that UGH, that wasn’t suppose to look like that! You’re suppose to see the iris clearly – not the stems. (yes this is from film)

But now there’s these handy things called digital cameras.

So?

How cool is that?

Now (sometimes) don’t you wish life was that easy? I mean really, to be able to re-gain your focus with just the click of a button or two?

Go ahead, ‘fess up – you know you have. At least once. For example, you could be so incredibly excited about an upcoming event that you mess up a project you’re working on. You’re not focused on the task at hand.

Focusing on your business is key. Perhaps you can afford to make a mistake, maybe two. But how does that affect your integrity? Will clients feel they can count on you when things get tough? Or will they wonder, just how many times will it take to get this done right?

I will admit that YES I have been guilty of losing my focus. Then I have to work that much harder to correct the mistakes/missteps I made to regain the trust of my client. Sometimes that’s much harder than it would have been to simply sit down, take a moment to focus.

So, how is your focus? Is it more like that iris? The main part of the picture – the story is blurred and lost. Do you have to try too hard to understand?

Or is your focus like that Swollowtail? Clear, sharp and you can easily read the story.
