Focus – is yours helping you or hurting you?

focushorizon Some of you may know that I do some guest writing on the Joyful Jubilant Learning (JJL) community site.  If you don’t follow JJL, just wanted to let you know that my latest post, “Where are you focusing?,” went live a few hours ago.

Today’s post was inspired by a Johnny Cash song (which was a remake of a Nine Inch Nails song), which got me thinking about focus, and whether my current focus is making my life better or worse. 

In essence, the thinking is this:  When things aren’t going your way, it’s easy to get into a negative spiral.  You can’t control things around you, but you can control your focus and the way you frame your world.

Anyway, check it out (there is even a Johnny Cash video, which I highly recommend you watch). While you’re there, check out some of the other great thinking going on at JJL.
