Eyes of focus

Monday Morning Motivation – Focus

By: Curt Stowers

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss "focus."

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


Growing up I could not see the “big E” on the eye chart. I’m not sure that I qualified as legally blind, but I know that you would NOT want me driving without my contact lenses. About a dozen years back I got corrective eye surgery. Game changer! I went from not being able to see anything to having nearly 20/20 vision in a few minutes.

A few minutes getting help from the right individual (the eye doctor) brought things into focus for me. And life was much better.

There are multiple other areas in my life where it took WAY too long to reach out to the right individual(s). As a result, it took WAY too long to get properly focused. Sometimes we can find the focus on our own. However, normally it helps/accelerates things when we enlist the time and support of others.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • Who do you need to reach out to for help with your focus?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!



About MMM: Each week I publish “Monday Morning Motivation” in the hopes that at least one person will find a bit of inspiration and that this inspiration will have a positive impact on their life. My motivation comes from experiences, reading, sermons, and discussions.
