Deciding what not to do has been so important to get to here

August 23, 20231 min read

Going back 18 years ago. 🔙

I had just had a baby.

💥 And I was studying my CPA and there were so many moments where I thought this is all too hard.

In those moments I was usually thinking I had to do all the things I used to, and if I did not then there was like this wave of guilt that I would have.

I did not realise it at the time but what got me through was the focus on where I was going, and the ability to shut off to the noise of what was not on that path. 🎯

In the first five months, I had my first baby, successfully passed another CPA exam and lost the baby weight I had gained, because I choose not to focus on everything and to just focus on where I was going.

It is something I’ll use to focus still to this day, asking myself the question of is this important to where I am going or not, and believe me I have given myself a heap of excuses and I have heard so many from others also to keep doing the things that don’t align, and I am not suggesting that you don’t maintain a normal healthy life, I am saying that when you are looking at what’s on for the day, look at each aspect and ask is this something I should be doing or not doing?

Oh and watch out for the excuses that come up….that’s normal.
