Are You Focusing on the Right Thing?
In my last video, I spoke with you about the idea that the first 90 minutes of your day are the most important. Studies have shown that’s when you are most productive, you have the most focus, and you have the highest level of energy and the highest level of will power.
Today I want to talk to you about what to do in the first 90 minutes of your Work. And the point of all of this is about FOCUS.

Carol (a therapist) came to us and says, “After my Soul Adventure, I have remained centered, focused, loving, open and giving with a clarity that I never had before. My husband said he sees a ‘new woman.’”
“After my Soul Adventure, I returned home feeling truly renewed. Though ‘life’ continues to twirl with a vengeance around me, I have remained centered, focused, loving, open and giving with a clarity that I never had before. My husband said he sees a ‘new woman.’ I clearly have ‘new tools’ for both my therapy practice and my life. My wish is that both my husband and I will return and experience Soul Adventures together. Until then…”

I spoke with you in my last video about the idea that the first 90 minutes of your day are the most important. Studies have shown that’s when you are most productive, you have the most focus, and you have the highest level of energy and the highest level of will power. And I spoke with you about things you can be doing in those first 90 minutes to set the tone for the rest of the day, which is really about setting the tone for the rest of your life.
If you want to set the tone, here are the suggestions I gave you in the last video:
- HeartMath Heart Coherence Technique (if you don’t know what that is, Google it; its effects are sort of astounding)
- Write in Your Journal
- Do a Gratitude Journal
- Read Inspirational Books
- Plan Your Day
- Drink Water (with lemon)
Today I want to talk to you about what to do in the first 90 minutes of your Work.
Depending on the kind of work you do, you may not have total flexibility with this, but if you do, this can be magical.
The point of all of this, is FOCUS.
Most thought leaders these days are in agreement that FOCUS is the most important thing we need in our lives – that it’s even more important than intelligence and creativity
Did you really rear that?
Yes. Most people agree and studies have shown that focus can be even more important than intelligence and creativity.
When we’re unfocused, we’re scattered, we’re adrift and the worst part is, we feel like we are never accomplishing anything. It’s a terrible feeling.
So let me ask you – What do you do with the first 90 minutes of your work day?
Hopefully you’ve started the first 90 minutes of the day with meditation, gratitude and exercise, but what do you do next?
Do you have a process for keeping yourself focused?
Are you prone to distraction throughout the day?
- Check your email, texts and other social media constantly? (Do you have special dings for notifications? — That will definitely make you distracted).
- Do you spend a lot of time on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?
- Do you spend a lot of time on YouTube watching videos of cute kittens and puppies?
Don’t get me wrong, videos of cute kittens and puppies and laughing babies make me happy. And I’m not perfect in this area — it’s so easy for me to get distracted. All of a sudden I’ll get a notification of something on Facebook. I’ll go to check that and then on the sidebar I’ll see that some celebrity has done something outrageous and then I’ll give myself a guilty pleasure and click on that… and then on the sidebar there’s some YouTube video that sounds especially interesting and uplifting, so I’ll click on that, until I finally Stop!
And this is the big reason why you have to stop this:
Studies have shown that it takes 21 minutes(!) to really get back into what you were doing. So think about it, if you let yourself get distracted 6 times during the day, that’s over 2 hours that it takes to really get you back into what you were doing.
I’m not saying don’t go on Facebook anymore, but honestly, does it really help you that much? And I’m not saying don’t go on YouTube — there are lots and lots of inspiring videos on YouTube. What I am saying is that living your life with FOCUS will make you feel better. It will make every area of your life feel better.
So let me ask you:
Do you feel unfocused?
Do you feel scattered?
Does your mind race while you lie in bed trying to get to sleep?
Do you feel anxious?
Do you constantly feel like you should be doing more and more?
What I’ve found in these 17 years of working with people here, is that these feelings are usually on top of something deeper. When we find those, clear them and come back into connection, everything changes.
Let us help you with that. Let us clear out the gunk so that you feel more connected and focused. Connect with us and we’ll custom design a retreat that’s perfect for you.
